Abstract

P. aeruginosa biofilms are difficult to treat due to the thick extracellular matrix and acquired antibiotic resistance. The bacteriophage (virus that infects bacterial cells) can destroy and prevent further growth of the bacterial biofilms. The goal of this project has been to treat biofilms with phages and check for antibiotic resistance.
