where would L-form + biofilm bacteria fit in that diagram?

What a coincidence that I posted that on curemyth1 ;)

For those reading here, their Home page has links to other illustrations and animations about cells and genetics, simplified for those of us without a science background: http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/

I'd like to point out the following page to all of you who do understand the scientific terminology; maybe you can find some interesting pictures or videos to share with us from this list of links (check out the Center for Cell Dynamics):

http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/begin/cells/videos/

Here's one I found– virtual scanning electron microscopy:

And one more site I thought was fascinating:

And this, the crawling neutrophil chasing a bacterium!!!
http://www.biochemweb.org/neutrophil.shtml

Of course we want to see more on the immune system in action... hope you find some good stuff for us!

I think that the transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images by Wirostko provide a kind of scale for L-forms in community within a lymphocyte.

See this: Presentation - It is time to bury Koch - Infectious disease transitions to an understanding of the Metagenome.

Transcript for Slide #16:

Here we have a picture from a transmission electron microscopy study at Columbia University back in the 1980's by Emil Wirostko. Emil’s group studied lymphocytes, monocytes, macrophages, and neutrophils, from patients with Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, Sarcoidosis, and Lupus. And they found the same thing.

In all of those diseases there were infectious colonies of bacteria—which stained as bacteria—that were living within the cytoplasm of these phagocytic cells. The very cells, the lymphocytes that are supposed to get rid of the pathogens from our body are actually being parasitized in these chronic diseases.
