Magnetic sensitivity has been found in bacteria from freshwater sites around Pavia, Italy. 
Further studies on “magnetosensitive bacteria”
Various experimental techniques for study of magnetosensitive bacteria are described and the experimental results are presented and discussed.
Diversity, Biomineralization and Rock Magnetism of Magnetotactic Bacteria

Magnetotactic Bacteria: Performances and Challenges
This review is an attempt in same line with an objective to attract scientists about MTB's capabilities and some of their limitations that need attention for practical applications of these bacteria.
Two Genera of Magnetococci with Bean-like Morphology from Intertidal Sediments of the Yellow Sea, China
A group of uncultivated marine magnetococci collected from intertidal sediments of Huiquan Bay in the Yellow Sea are described, showing the unique capacity of being able to swim along geomagnetic field lines and displaying north-seeking helical motion.
Magnetite biomineralization in bacteria.
This chapter discusses the current biological and chemical knowledge of magnetite biomineralization in these bacteria, and highlights the extraordinary properties of magnetosomes and some resulting potential applications.
Molecular mechanisms of compartmentalization and biomineralization in magnetotactic bacteria.
An overview of MB is presented and the possible molecular mechanisms of membrane remodeling, protein sorting, cytoskeletal organization, iron transport, and biomineralization that lead to the formation of a functional magnetosome organelle are explored.
