Biofilms constitute an important survival strategy for microorganisms, and therefore are ubiquitous in the environment, being involved in many chronic and difficult to treat infections. Bacteriophages (phages), as natural predators of bacteria, have evolved and found routes to successfully reach and kill their hosts within the biofilm structure. This talk is about the exploitation of phages and derived enzymes (endolysins/depolymerases) to control infectious biofilms

This talk is part of the Bacteriophage 2017 series.
