Biofilm pathogen

«A biofilm comprises any syntrophic consortium of microorganisms in which cell stick to each other and often also to a surface.[2][3] These adherent cell become embedded within a slimy extracellular matrix that is composed of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS).[2][3] The cell within the biofilm produce the EPS components, which are typically a polymeric conglomeration of extracellular polysaccharides, proteins, lipids and DNA.[2][3][4] Because they have three-dimensional structure and represent a community lifestyle for microorganisms, they have been metaphorically described as "cities for microbes".[5][6]
