Electrical Conductivity in a Mixed-Species BiofilmApplied and Environmental Microbiology (2012)
Geobacter sulfurreducens can form electrically conductive biofilms, but the potential for conductivity through mixed species biofilms has not been examined. A current-producing biofilm grown from a wastewater sludge inoculum was highly conductive with low charge transfer resistance even though microorganisms other than Geobacteraceae accounted for nearly half the microbial community.
