Molekulare Mechanismen während der Anheftung und Biofilmbildung in Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 - Die Tücken des Besiedelns -

Grenzflächenbesiedlung durch robuste Bakteriengemeinschaften – sogenannten Biofilmen – stellt die ubiquitär verbreitete Lebensform von Mikroorganismen dar, um einer Vielzahl von Stressfaktoren zu widerstehen. Das Entwicklungsprogramm solcher Biofilme lässt sich in mehrere distinkte Schritte un...
