Microfluidic Quantification of Yeast Surface Adhesion

Abstract

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.
