Insights into Biofilms
Biofilms represent a significant economic and societal burden to many different sectors of health and industry.
Microbial communities of bacteria, fungi and higher eukaryotes interact with one another within a polymeric glue, which supports their attachment to surfaces and other physical interfaces.
These microbial communities can be detrimental in many different ways causing pathogenic insults or corrosion of surfaces, and importantly exhibiting tolerance and adaptation antimicrobial challenge.
Biofilm biology spans across health, industrial and environmental sectors. They are difficult to detect, difficult to treat, and even more difficult to eradicate. Biofilms remain an important and challenging topic given the relevance of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR).
