Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0006935 - chemotaxis

Synonyms: taxis in response to chemical stimulus

Definition: The directed movement of a motile cell or organism, or the directed growth of a cell guided by a specific chemical concentration gradient. Movement may be towards a higher concentration (positive chemotaxis) or towards a lower concentration (negative chemotaxis).
