Morphogenesis and cell ordering in confined bacterial biofilms

Morphogenesis and cell ordering in confined bacterial #biofilms. Study shows that the confining environment determines the dynamics of #biofilm shape & internal structure. Significance Biofilms are microbial cities in which bacterial cells reside in a polymeric matrix. They are commonly found inside soft confining environments such as food matrices and host tissues, against which bacteria must push to proliferate. Here, by combining single-cell live imaging and mechanical cha

Microbes’ matchmaker helps bacteria to slime your teeth

Scientists studied biofilm formation by Streptococcus mutans, one of the main causes of tooth decay. They found that S. mutans has a genetic complex that promotes the formation of robust biofilms, and identified five molecules that this complex encodes. #biofilms #microbiology #caries #oralhealth #dentistry #dental
