The formation of bacterial biofilms may be the cause of nosocomial infections or antibiotic resistance. While most research on the mechanisms of formation of these biofilms is made
in vitro, a collaboration of researchers at the Large Scale Biology Laboratory and Dr. de Bentzmann, Université Aix-Marseille, has yielded
in vivo results in the formation of biofilms of
Pseudomonas aeruginosa in Drosophila. The foundation for further research can be launched.
