  1. Thank you for posting this video of mine! It was fun to do. I took many photos, and my wife did a lovely job of creating a PowerPoint show (we are new to video approaches). Then she converted it into the YouTube compatible format you see above. It is a VERY bright microbe, and my students love tinkering with it…
