One of the central puzzles concerning the interaction of low Reynolds number (Re<<1) fluid transport with bacterial biomass is the formation of filamentous structures called bacterial streamer. Bacterial streamers can be tethered at one or both ends to solid surfaces, while the rest of the...
Biofouling refers to the undesirable accumulation and growth of biological substances on a artificial surface with time. Biofilm on the surfaces occurs due to bacterial aggregation and extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) that acts as the construction material of biofilm. EPS consists of...
A bacterial colony constitutes a complex microcosm which is equipped with a wide range of defensive adaptations that allow the colony to survive adverse environmental conditions and predation. The extreme resilience of bacteria in colonies has been a subject of continued research for nearly two...
