We give a short overview of three different aspects of the work done in our laboratory on the propulsion mechanism of the bacterium named ‘listeria’. They concern (1) the mechanical properties of the comet of the native bacterium, (2) the polymerization/crosslinking process of actin gels in spherical geometry, and (3) a theoretical analysis of the mesoscopic aspects of the propulsion.
