Although competitive interactions between bacteria (bacterial interference), are likely to represent a key aspect of many infectious processes, the nature of these interactions within mixed biofilm communities is poorly understood. We use in vitro biofilm models […]
Biofilm formation on medical devices is associated with hospital-acquired (nosocomial) infections. Due to biofilms’ high tolerance to antibiotics, classical treatments lack efficacy, and removal of the biofilm-contaminated device is often the only therapeutic option. […]
