Description

Video 1: Active detachment of bacterial cells from the frontline of interstitial biofilms and free movement of planktonic cells or small bacterial clusters were noticed after 24 h of biofilm culture in a humid chamber. Video 2: The dispersed cells seeded a nearby area and re-established a standalone “daughter” biofilm. The “daughter” biofilms expanded to merge with the primary biofilm and lead to migration of the interstitial biofilm.
