Biofilms, surface-associated microbial communities composed of aggregates of cells that are encased by an extracellular matrix, have a tremendous impact on industrial, clinical, and natural environments. The 7th ASM Conference on Biofilms will provide a platform to discuss the latest research, covering topics that include molecular basis and regulation of biofilm formation, biofilms in natural and industrial systems, diagnosis and study of clinically-relevant biofilms, and emerging technologies and their application to biofilms. The conference will help foster the interdisciplinary discourse that has been the hallmark of this meeting, bringing together leading US and international scientists across different disciplines.
