Bacillus cereus, a food-borne pathogen, is capable to form biofilms. Biofilms are microbial communities that are controlled by a biological mechanism called quorum sensing. In this image, the B. cereus biofilm was viewed under microscope using LPO and grown in microtiter plate well for 48 hrs of... Read More
