Developmental regulation of microbial biofilms
MetadataShow full item record
Sophisticated molecular and microscopic methods used to study biofilm formation are rapidly broadening our understanding of surface-attached microbial communities in a wide variety of organisms. Regulatory mechanisms involved in the attachment and subsequent development of mature biofilms are being elucidated. Common themes are beginning to emerge, providing promise for the development of sophisticated control strategies.
