Special Issue on Bacterial Adhesion and Biofilms Formation   

Bacterial adhesion to surfaces and subsequent formation of microcolonies play important roles in biofilm formation. It has received much attention in the last decade, as it has become clear that virtually all types of bacteria can form biofilms and that this may be the preferred mode of bacterial existence in nature.


In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring bacterial adhesion and biofilms formation. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Bacteria-surface interactions
  • Biofilm structure
  • Biofilm resistance
  • Bacterial adhesion on surface
  • Biofilm formation and control
  • Mechanisms of bacterial adhesion and development
  • Techniques and measurement of bacterial and biofilm adhesion
  • Usefulness and harmfulness of biofilm


Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Bacterial Adhesion and Biofilms Formation” should be selected during your submission.
