Candida Albicans Biofilms: More Than Filamentation

Curr Biol. 2005 Jun 21;15(12):R453-5. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2005.06.020.


Candida albicans is the fungal species most commonly associated with biofilm formation in immunosuppressed patients. Recent work offers a fresh new look at the role of filamentation in C. albicans biofilm formation, and describes the application of a powerful tool for the molecular dissection of these important developmental processes.
