Biofilm-grown Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides SC exhibit both phenotypic and genotypic variation compared with planktonic cells.

Abstract

Biofilm formation where bacterial cells adhere to a surface and surround themselves in a polysaccharide matrix is thought to be an important factor in disease initiation and persistence for many bacterial species. We have examined biofilm formation by Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides small colony using a simple model without an air/liquid interface and… (More)
