Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0042710 - biofilm formation

Definition: A process in which planktonically growing microorganisms grow at a liquid-air interface or on a solid substrate under the flow of a liquid and produce extracellular polymers that facilitate matrix formation, resulting in a change in the organisms' growth rate and gene transcription.

Parent Classes:
GO:0044764 - multi-organism cellular process

Child Classes:
GO:0044010 - single-species biofilm formation (28)

Parts:
GO:0043708 - cell adhesion involved in biofilm formation (16)
