Mixed colony biofilms & disease outcome

This molecular and biomedical science honours project explores mixed colony biofilms and their relationship to disease outcomes.

Biofilms have largely been studied as a singular species-type when the more relevant state is bacteria existing in a mixed population.

An interesting addition to the bacterial response to the physical and chemical conditions and stresses of its environment is the biological variations; that is the other bacteria that are present, and the affect this has on lifestyle and disease outcome. 

An example is the biofilm formed in the mouth and the possible systemic result of this infection.
