Biofilms Keio Collection         


The Keio collection was screened for mutants with defects in biofilm formation, identifying 110 mutations affecting biofilms (Niba, 2008).


The phenotypes were confirmed in P1 backcross transductants and the mutations were confirmed by PCR; some mutations or phenotypes could not be confirmed in one of the two Keio collection mutant strains, but they were omitted from the final 110 list (Niba, 2008).
