Special Issue Information
In nature, as a rule, several types of microorganisms coexist in biofilms in the form of a single community. It is shown that in a biofilm, in comparison with pure planktonic cultures of bacteria, their numerous physiological processes occur in a different way, including the production of metabolites and biologically active substances. Microbial biofilms comprises of major classes of macromolecules like nucleic acids, polysaccharides, proteins, enzymes, lipids, humic substances as well as ions. The presence of these components indeed makes them resilient and enables them to survive hostile conditions.
The goal of this Special Issue is to publish both recent innovative research results, as well as review papers on the production of biofilms and fermentative processes of the biofilms. Review and research papers on development of novel enzymes and microbial strains are also of interest. If you would like to contribute a review paper, please contact one of the editors to discuss the topic relevance before submitting the manuscript.
