As the success of this two-issue special section of the Journal of Industrial Microbiology attests, the study of microbial biofilms is truly burgeoning as the uniqueness and the importance of this mode of growth is increasingly recognized. Because of its universality the biofilm concept impacts virtually all of the subdivisions of Microbiology including Medical, Dental, Agricultural, Industrial and Environmental and these two issues incorporate contributions from authors in all of these disciplines.

This book examines biofilms in nature.

What is a biofilm? A large number of bacteria exist as communities attached to a surface. That surface can be any object immersed in a liquid. In natural systems it might be a rock in a stream, or the stem of an aquatic plant. In clinical systems it could be your teeth, the surface of one of your organs, a catheter. From an applied aspect it could be the inner surface of a water pipe.

Biofilms are clusters of microorganisms that stick to non-biological surfaces, such as rocks in a stream, as well as to surfaces on plants roots or in animals epithelium. These clusters are often encased in an outer polymer layer that can be produced by the microorganism or by the defensive mechanisms of the colonized host. Biofilm formation is astonishingly widespread in nature and appears very early in the fossil record.

Biofilms: microbes and disease. Madhu Sharma Aparna Pt. Address for correspondence. Bacteria that attach to surface aggregate in a hydrated polymeric matrix of their own synthesis to form biofilms. These represent microbial societies with their own defense and communication system.


Costerton et al. () stated that biofilm consists of single cells and microcolonies, all embedded in a highly hydrated, predominantly anionic.


Bacterial Biofilms

Biofilms--matrix-enclosed microbial accretions that adhere to biological or non-biological surfaces--represent a significant and incompletely understood mode of growth for bacteria. Biofilm formation appears early in the fossil record approximately 3. It is evident that biofilm formation is an ancient and integral component of the prokaryotic life cycle, and is a key factor for survival in diverse environments. Recent advances show that biofilms are structurally complex, dynamic systems with attributes of both primordial multicellular organisms and multifaceted ecosystems. Biofilm formation represents a protected mode of growth that allows cells to survive in hostile environments and also disperse to colonize new niches.

 - Он проводил Беккера в фойе, показал, где находится консьерж, и поспешил исчезнуть. Фойе оказалось помещением с изысканной отделкой и элегантной обстановкой. Испанский Золотой век давным-давно миновал, но какое-то время в середине 1600-х годов этот небольшой народ был властелином мира. Комната служила гордым напоминанием о тех временах: доспехи, гравюры на военные сюжеты и золотые слитки из Нового Света за стеклом. За конторкой с надписью КОНСЬЕРЖ сидел вежливый подтянутый мужчина, улыбающийся так приветливо, словно всю жизнь ждал минуты, когда сможет оказать любезность посетителю.

Она бежала короткими испуганными прыжками, волоча по кафельному полу туристскую сумку. Беккер хотел подняться на ноги, но у него не было на это сил. Ослепленные глаза горели огнем. Он хотел крикнуть, но в легких не было воздуха, с губ срывалось лишь невнятное мычание.

 Вам плохо. Клушар едва заметно кивнул: - Просто… я переволновался, наверное.  - И замолчал. - Подумайте, мистер Клушар, - тихо, но настойчиво сказал Беккер.  - Это очень важно. Клушар заморгал. - Я не знаю… эта женщина… он называл ее… - Он прикрыл глаза и застонал.

Сьюзан была убеждена, что это невозможно. Угрожающий потенциал всей этой ситуации подавил. Какие вообще у них есть доказательства, что Танкадо действительно создал Цифровую крепость. Только его собственные утверждения в электронных посланиях. И конечно… ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Компьютер висел уже почти двадцать часов.

Чего же он ждет. Он засмеялся. Ведь пилот может радировать Стратмору.

    Biofilm is a microbial association or community attached to different biotic or abiotic surfaces or environments.
