Quorum-sensing (cell–cell signaling) has also been suggested to mediate the exodus of cells from crowded biofilms of Serratia spp. [81]. 10. FUNGAL BIOFILM FORMATION Fungi are organisms that lack chlorophyll, but resemble plants. These organisms are saprophytic, but can also utilize living matter. Fungi are subdivided into yeasts, which are unicellular and molds that are multicellular with filamentous hyphae. Fungal biofilm formation is a complex and diverse phenomenon. Candida species are emerging as important nosocomial pathogens, and an implanted device with a detectable biofilm is frequently associated with these infections [82].
