Understanding How Bacteria Form Multicellular Biofilm Communities On Surfaces: The Role Of C-Di-Gmp As A Potent Biofilm Activator
Grant number: DP130100957 | Funding period: 2013 - 2015
Bacteria usually exist as multicellular communities called biofilms when attached to surfaces, frequently to the detriment of the environment, industry and health. This project will explore the strategies bacteria use to switch from living as free-floating, individual cells to forming biofilms by studying how bacteria 'switch on' their biofilm genes.
