Microbial biofilms are serious problem in medical settings as they are associated with significant mortality and morbidity. Infection related to biofilms not only increases recovery time, but also escalates the cost of disease management. Biofilms are intrinsically resistant to antibiotics and evade human defense mechanisms. In addition, the close proximity of microbes within biofilms promotes genetic transformation, facilitating the acquisition of antibiotic-resistant genes and leading to an increased prevalence of diseases associated with resistance. Fortunately, with advances in science and technology, novel strategies are being utilized to mitigate the impact of biofilms on human health.Microbial Biofilms: Role in Human Infectious Diseases focuses on new and emerging concepts in microbial biofilm research. It explores topics such as the mechanisms of biofilm formation, biofilm-induced pathogenesis, biofilm detection and diagnosis, gene exchange within biofilms, strategies to control microbial biofilms, and the burden of biofilm-associated infections. Additionally, the book highlights the various antibiofilm strategies, such as surface coating, signal quenching, novel compounds that can be translated to curb biofilm-associated infections, and the escalation of antimicrobial resistance determinants.

Application and utilization of data science approaches has revolutionized scientific research including host–pathogen interaction analyses. Host–pathogen interactions are generally considered highly specific interactions, resulting in a variety of consequences. Data science approaches coupled with network biology has taken host–pathogen interaction analysis from specific interaction to a new paradigm of understanding the consequences of these interactions within a biological network. Unfortunately, basic biological researchers are mostly unaware of these advancements. Conversely, data scientists are not familiar with biological aspects of such data. Systems Biology Approaches for Host–Pathogen Interaction Analyses benefits biological researchers by expanding the scope of their research and utilization of their accumulated data using recent technological advancements. In addition, the book also opens avenues for bioinformatics and computer science researchers to utilize their expertise in biologically meaningful ways.
