Accession:GO:0044399 term browser browse the term
Definition:A process in which planktonically growing microorganisms of different species grow at a liquid-air interface or on a solid substrate under the flow of a liquid and produce extracellular polymers that facilitate matrix formation, resulting in a change in the organisms' growth rate and gene transcription.
Synonyms:narrow_synonym: multi-species biofilm formation in or on host organism;   multi-species biofilm formation on inanimate substrate;   multi-species submerged biofilm formation
 related_synonym: multi-species surface biofilm formation
