Biofilms in marine environments; implications for aquaculture, coral reefs, marine aquariums, and the human pathogen Vibrio cholerae Part 5

GENETIC CONTROL OF BIOFILM FORMATION Several genes and gene clusters have been identified in Vibrio cholerae that have aided in the understanding of how biofilms are formed and what environmental factors are determinants in their formation. The first gene involved is in the vps gene cluster. This gene cluster is involved in the creation of […]
