About this Research Topic
Due to their clinical relevance, the enhanced accuracy of biofilm related methodologies will contribute to improving our knowledge of biofilm-related diseases and aiding in the development of effective biofilm control strategies. Owing to their complexity, the study of biofilms is often limited by the techniques available for their analysis. The goal of this research topic is to present new and/or improved techniques for biofilm identification and analysis.
We welcome the contributions for this Research Topic in the form of Methods papers, Original Research papers, and Reviews. The scope encompasses any work that addresses the following themes:
• Biofilms visualization/ imaging techniques.
• Novel methods to detect biofilms.
• Development of novels strategies for the study of biofilms.
• Novel insights in biofilms analysis using current techniques.
Keywords: Biofilms, Confocal microscopy, Transcriptomics, Biofilm Regulation, Biofilm Sensors
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
