The images shown are 3D-reconstructed images of biofilm dynamics of Hex1T (A-E), Hex1TMS (F-J), PAO1 (K-O) and PAO1MS (P-T). The development of mutator biofilms was exhaustively studied in parallel to wild-type biofilms. All strains were GFP-tagged and grown in continuous flow system in FAB medium supplemented with 0.3 mM glucose for 144 h. Confocal images were acquired following 15, 24, 48, 96 and 144 h of growth.
