The formation of biofilms is a complex process that involves activation of a wide array of genetic material within the cells found living within the biofilm. It has been shown that altered colony morphology has been associated with different biofilm levels within P. aureginosa. This analysis will provide further evidence of the strength of the colony morphology screen to isolate mutants with altered biofilm or swarming abilities.
