Abstract

The development of surface-attached communities called biofilms is often thought to be a regulated developmental process involving profound biofilm-specific modifications. Despite intense scrutiny and a growing body of evidence correlating changes in gene expression with the switch from planktonic-to-biofilm lifestyle, an integrated view of biofilm formation is still missing.
