Images of commercially grown bacteria and some of their uses
These are images of the many different types of bacteria grown commercially. Many of these will be covered by forthcoming pages in this website. Most of the images have been taken with either a transmission electron microscope (TEM) or a scanning electron microscope (SEM). In the future, this website will contain a section devoted to the ultrastructure of bacteria.
