Summary of Thesis

The objectives of the present study were determining the microbial population contributing in biofilm formation. In addition to, study the behavior and biological characteristics of some pathogenic bacteria in biofilm state. To achieve the first aim forty eight natural biofilm samples were collected from different types of microhabitats (drinking water distribution system (DWDS), kitchen sink drainage pipes, bathroom sink drainage pipes and lab sink drainage pipes) to determine the characteristics of the predominant microorganisms. Spread plate method was used to determine the pathogenic microbes by using enzymatic cultures. The results of microbiological characterization of natural bi...
