Caption for February 2006 Agricultural Research magazine article, "Forum—Food Safety’s Bright Web Venue: FSRIO." FSRIO’s database documents investigations of Salmonella species (shown at left: S. enterica serovar Enteritidis), Campylobacter, and other foodborne pathogens.

Caption for March 2005 Agricultural Research magazine article, "Detectives Search for Antimicrobial-Resistant Organisms." Cells of Salmonella enteritidis change shape as they grow. This scanning electron micrograph shows a mixture of small cells with filaments and very large cells that lack filaments. Small cells arise only during certain growth stages and efficiently contaminate eggs when the time is right.
