Abstract: Swimming bacteria play crucial roles in processes ranging from the biodegradation of pollutants in groundwater to the spread of infections in the human body. The environments inhabited by these motile cells are characterized by porous microstructure and dynamic fluid flows. We show that the complex interplay between motility, geometry, and flow can lead to heterogeneous distributions of ... read more
