These screams are not audible; instead, they are chemical alarms that the bacteria broadcast while on they are close to death, an action commonly referred to as necrosignaling. Through necrosignaling, bacteria alert their fellow bacteria to presence of a looming threat and save the majority of the swarm (a bacterial colony that is on the move). When confronted by a threat such as antibiotics, the bacteria’s chemical death cries can provide survivors enough time to go through mutations that develop antibiotic resistance, scientists have reported in a study. Several species of bacteria swim around with the support of long tail-like structures referred too as flagella, which helps them swiftly. And occasionally, bacteria such as Escherichia coli (E. coli) gather in the billions and use their flagella to move together over solid surfaces, as a swarm. “Bacterial swarms are…
