Do bacteria swim?

“For bacteria to swim in water,” explained Jay Tang, associate professor of physics at Brown University, “it's like us trying to swim through honey. The drag is dominant.” Tang and his team at Brown have just completed the most detailed study of the swimming patterns of one particular bacterium, Caulobacter crescentus.

How does a bacteria maintain homeostasis?
