    Barry, Edward; Hensel, Zach; Dogic, Zvonimir; Shribak, Michael; Oldenbourg, Rudolf (American Physical Society, 2006-01-11)
    We study the liquid-crystalline phase behavior of a concentrated suspension of helical flagella isolated from Salmonella typhimurium. Flagella are prepared with different polymorphic states, some of which have a pronounced ...
