Vibrio cholerae

I just wanted to point out how the bacteria moves, and what it looks like under a microscope.Also, i thought it was fascinating how quickly they reproduce, and it got me wondering how fast the generational rate is for this strain. And so I looked into it real fast and found out it is about 24 minutes. Let one bacterium sit in a London cesspool overnight, and you got yourself a math problem that is way harder than I first realized, and a whole lot of cholera.
