Biofilm Formation by Clostridium ljungdahlii Is Induced by Sodium Chloride Stress: Experimental Evaluation and Transcriptome Analysis

Table 2

Overview of the properties of the biofilms obtained with and without NaCl addition and on different materials.

The maximum biofilm thickness was obtained using COMSTAT, while the surface coverage was determined using FIJI. Averages and standard deviations were calculated from values derived from at least three different images taken at different areas of the biofilm. The biomass was calculated from the maximum biofilm thickness and the surface coverage and is therefore also a maximum value.
