  1. It seems that more research is needed for determining the role of genes product in S. epidermidis strains and finding the relationship between the expression of product and biofilm-formation procedure in mentioned bacteria. In the current study, only the presence of genes responsible for biofilm formation process has been assessed. Expression of the related genes product to the evaluation of their role in the biofilm-formation procedure has not been performed yet
