Microfluidic Quantification of Yeast Surface Adhesion

<div>Fungal adhesion is fundamental to processes ranging from</div><div>infection to food production yet, robust, population-scale</div><div>quantification methods for yeast surface adhesion are lacking. We developed a microfluidic assay to distinguish the effects of genetic background and solution conditions on adhesion. This approach will enable the rapid screening of yeast adhesive properties for anti-fouling surfaces and a host of other applications.</div>
