Bacterial behavior at surfaces
Geesey, Gill G.
MetadataShow full item record
Population level studies demonstrate that bacterial colonization of surfaces and subsequent biofilm architecture are controlled by a variety of factors that include the hydrodynamics, surface chemistry and genotype of the cell. New molecular tools now extend our ability to investigate among bacterial cells within a surface-associated population subtle phenotypic differences that do not involve changes in genotype. Such resolution has led to new discoveries in relationships between bacterial cells and their environment.
