Shadowing the actions of a predator: backlit fluorescent microscopy reveals synchronous nonbinary septation of predatory Bdellovibrio inside prey and exit through discrete bdelloplast pores.

Method For live microscopy, synchronous predatory infections were set up using methods scaled down from those previously described in full in reference 9.
Comments Average prey cell length was 4.67µm±1.37 and width was 0.97µm±0.09 (n=167).
