Mycobacteria – more than just blobs

The cell biology of bacteria has been difficult to explore because of they’re really, really small. However, newer approaches are revealing a functional ultrastructure that likely has important effects on physiology. We’ll discuss how these methods are changing our view of mycobacteria.
