In science:

To keep the scope of the article manageable, we do not consider other mechanisms that could reasonably be termed “swimming,” such as the polymerization of the actin of a host cell by pathogens of the genus Listeria , or the gas-vesicle mediated buoyancy of aquatic micoorganisms such as Cyanobacteria .
