comment fastq-dump using mkfifo to stream data
Can you give an example of the kind of piping you are trying to do? Frequently I just try something like bin1 infile | bin2 - and see what happens.

comment Long-term effects of antihistamines on mind and CNS

comment What triggers the formation of biofilm?
Your third sentence, wherein you say you understand how biofilms form contradicts your 1st and 5th sentences wherein you ask how it forms. Can you edit your question to be less vague, provide sufficient background, and generally clarify what you don't understand.
