Microfluidic Quantification of Yeast Surface Adhesion

preprint
submitted on 05.06.2018 and posted on 07.06.2018 by Kristina Reinmets, Amin Dehkharghani, Jeffrey S. Guasto, Stephen Fuchs
Fungal adhesion is fundamental to processes ranging from
infection to food production yet, robust, population-scale
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.
