鞭毛

biānmáo - flagellum

Like my PhD, my postdoc involved research on flagella, only this time in algae, not trypanosomes. Like the English, the Chinese for flagellum is from the word to whip. Below is a sentence from Baidu.

纤毛和鞭毛由3个主要部分组成:中央轴纤丝、围绕它的质膜和一些细胞质。

Cilia and flagella have three main components: the central microtubules, the surrounding membrane and some cytoplasm.
