Caption: Metal-reducing bacteria. Coloured scanning electron micrograph of Shewanella oneidensis (rod shaped structures).This extremophile bacteria is able to convert toxic metals and compounds, such as uranium, chromium and technetium, into water-insoluble forms. This ability could one day be used to clean contaminated ground-water.
