Responsible for over 100,000 deaths per year, Vibrio cholerae represents a significant threat to human health. This poster explores the importance of fatty acids on biofilm formation in V. cholerae. Using a non-redundant transposon library for screening, several fatty acid-responsive gene candidates were identified for further study.
