Swimming in Circles: Motion of Bacteria near Solid Boundaries

Eric Lauga (now at MIT), W. R. Diluzio, G. M. Whitesides, and H. A. Stone of Harvard University published a very interesting paper, in which they demonstrated by using a fluid mechanics model that a bacteria, Esherichia coli, swims in circular trajectories when near solid boundaries,
