Microbial Biofilms: Challenges and Advances in Metabolomics Study, a volume in the Advances in Biotechnology and Bioengineering series, covers the metabolomic characteristics of bacterial biofilms and examines the techniques used in the analysis of the metabolomics of the biofilm, its formation and related infections. The book covers the metabolomics study of various types of biofilms and details new strategies in targeting metabolic pathways for inhibiting the biofilm. The book also details various types of metabolomics studies of biofilm formation such as oral biofilm and biofilm by various nosocomial organisms. Recent advancements on various aspects of metabolomics studies pertaining to biofilms, related infections, their pathogenesis, and present-day treatment strategies are also covered. This book will be a helpful resource to scientists and researchers engaged in studying the formation of biofilms based upon the metabolomics changes taking place within the organism and to clinicians and health professionals interested in chronic infections caused by the biofilm and related metabolomics studies.
