Bacteria is found in the spit of a hanging worm creature. This creature is very territorial and will spit out at anything that comes near it.
The simplest way to collect bacteria is to get hit by a spitter. Once hit you will continually gain small quantity of bacteria and take damage, until you return to the shuttle. You can drill into the base of the spitter to destroy it and gain a moderate amount of bacteria in a safe way, but the creature has bony plates protecting it, and is only vulnerable from directly above.
