Microbial Biofilms

Microbial Biofilms

Microorganisms live in biofilms that adhere to biotic and abiotic surfaces in most natural, clinical, and industrial settings. Biofilms are formed when microorganisms attach to surfaces. Biofilm is a complex microbiome structure that adheres to the surface and contains different bacterial colonies or single types of cells in a group. One of the implications of bacterial biofilm communities, which contribute to chronic diseases, is bacterial antibiotic resistance. Biofilms are clusters of microbial cells that are attached to a surface in a virtually irreversible manner, i.e., they cannot be removed by gently lifting the surface. Biofilms can form on living or non-living surfaces and can be found in a variety of environments, including natural, industrial, and hospital settings. Planktonic cells of the same organism, on the other hand, are single cells that float or swim in a liquid media and are physiologically separate from microbial cells developing in a biofilm. Biofilms can build as dental plaque on the teeth of most mammals, causing tooth decay and gum disease.
