"Biofilmomics": functional protein expression in biofilm biotechnologies revealed by quantitative proteomics
Microbial biotechnologies that utilize biofilms often exhibit superior performance compared with planktonic systems. Many details of biofilm metabolism that drive those improvements in performance remain unclear. Only recently have molecular tools emerged that can provide a holistic picture of life in a complex biosystem like a biofilm for the purposes of answering questions on a system level. The purpose of this work was to address four fundamental questions about protein expression in biofilms: what kind of protein expression is distinctive to biofilms? Which biofilm proteins are associated ...
