Methodological information

Most raw data in this repository is from fluorescence microscopy on bacteria. Many of the files are videos showing single-molecule dynamics of bacterial cell wall synthases inside live bacteria. Other files are data supporting these, such as characterizations of the bacterial strains used(growth, morphology, etc.).

Abbreviations: ROI = Region of Interest.

Instruments used: Bespoke single-molecule fluorescence microscope, Nikon Eclipse Ti, Nikon Eclipse Ti2, and Zeiss Elyra 7 Lattice SIM2.

Data acquisition software: Data collected using either Micro-Manager (v2.0gamma), NS-Elements (v5.42.02), or Zen Black 2.3 (v16.0.14.316).

Data analysis software: Videos analysed using Fiji (v1.54) with open-source plugins PureDenoise-GPU (v0.1.0) and PureDenoise-CPU (v0.1.0) (

Extended Data Figures 4 and 6, along with Supplementary Videos 14-16 show data from molecules manually tracked using TrackMate (v7.10.2).

Further data analysis done using Matlab with custom code available on the Whitley lab Github page:

The divisome complex was modelled by AlphaFold2, using ColabFold (v1.3.0) and AlphaFold-Multimer (v2).
