Data from: Shear-induced orientational dynamics and spatial heterogeneity in suspensions of motile phytoplankton

Michael T. Barry, Roberto Rusconi, Jeffrey S. Guasto & Roman Stocker
Fluid flow, ubiquitous in natural and man-made environments, has the potential to profoundly impact the transport of microorganisms, including phytoplankton in aquatic habitats and bioreactors. Yet, the effect of ambient flow on the swimming behavior of phytoplankton has remained poorly understood, largely due to the difficulty of observing cell-flow interactions at the microscale. Here, we present microfluidic experiments where we tracked individual cells for four species of motile phytoplankton exposed to a spatially non-uniform fluid...
