A methods paper, this article is relatively straightforward. The authors use a 96-well plate to perform a high-throughput assay for bacterial chemotaxis by setting up an array of gradients of L-aspartate (a chemoattractant). They establish these gradients using capillary tubes: first they dipped the tubes into motility medium either with or without the L-aspartate. They then sealed the tubes from above with wax, and finally they resuspended the tubes in 96-well plates inoculated with various bacterial concentrations.
