Develop control strategies against unwanted microbial biofilms in oil-field applications.


VTT provided biofilm model systems for true anaerobic microbes and developed novel molecular tools for microbial community profiling.


Molecular profiling identified uncultured microbes, enabling the development of biocides against relevant microbes in oil wells.
