Caption: Escherichia coli. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a colony of Escherichia coli, a gram-negative bacilli (rod-shaped) bacterium. At upper right a bacterium is dividing asexually by binary fission to form two daughter bacteria, such as the ones at lower left. While E. coli is a normal inhabitant of the human intestine, under certain conditions its numbers may increase, causing infection. In children, some strains cause gastroenteritis, while in adults it can result in "traveller's diarrhoea" and most urinary tract infections, such as cystitis. E. coli is widely used in genetic studies and genetic engin- eering. Magnification: x11,400 at 6x4.5cm size. x7000 at 35mm
