Development and application of a high-throughput mass spectrometry tool for microbial analysis of natural beer fermentations

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme IWT

Acidic lambic beers are the product of a spontaneous fermentation that lasts for at least two years and which is hardly characterized. Until now, quality control still consists of the follow‑up of the organoleptic evaluation of appearance, smell and taste of several casks by the brewer: seeing...

Benchmarking dissimilatory nitrate reduction: focus on nitrate partitioning and nitrous oxide production in Firmicutes

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos UGent-BOF

With Bacillus azotoformans a strain that is (theoretically) are capable of both DNRA and denitrification, and with in addition an unexpected redundancy for nitrous oxide production, is at our disposal. This bacterium may finally allow the identification of differentiating...

Metaproteomics analysis of the distal intestional microbiotica of cystic fibrosis patients.

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme FWO

The intestinal microbiota play an important role in health and disease of humans. Cystic fibrosis patients suffer from lung infections that require multiple antimicrobial therapies. In addition, their intestinal physiology and food digestion are severely disturbed. The present project will use...

The relationship between microbial diversity and the unique characteristics of Flemish 'Oud Bruin' beers

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme

Currently, the microbiota in 'Oud Bruin' beer fermentations is largely unknown. Therefore, it is impossible to describe and protect these beers. The aim of this project is to characterize the microbiota and metabolites of these beers through new high-throughput technologies. This will...

Microstructural and sensorial effects of the functional components milk fat globule membrane-fragments and natural antioxidants in fermented milk products.

Prof. Dr. Geert Huys BOF-UGent

The overall aim of this project is to obtain a more profound insight in the interactions between functional components, namely the milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) fragments and the natural antioxidants (AOX), and the bacterial starter and probiotic cultures in model systems of...

Isolation and identification of lactic acid bacteria from kefir ecosystems and characterization of their exopolysaccharides for application in functional foods

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme fwo, MINCyT

No description.

Differential response of distinct taxa involved in denitrification and dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium and effect on ecosystem functioning.

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos CSC

With Bacillus azotoformans a strain that is (theoretically) are capable of both DNRA and denitrification, and with in addition an unexpected redundancy for nitrous oxide production, is at our disposal. This bacterium may finally allow the identification of differentiating...

Dynamics and functional role of gut microbiota in bumblebees (Bombus terrestris) in their natural environment.

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme FWO-Vlaanderen

Sustainable methanotrophs: from ecology to microbial resource management

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos BOF-GOA

Methanotrophic bacteria play a vital role in reducing emissions of the greenhouse gas methane. These organisms are ubiquitous in nature and can use methane as sole carbon and energy source. This project focuses on the “microbial resource management” of methanotrophic communities. An...

Mining of (micro)biological profiles: going beyond cluster analysis.

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme Baekeland Fonds

The scientific objectives of this research project are to develop new methods for the detection of patterns and/or relationships within or between modern typing techniques, trying to converge the (biologically) most relevant information from each technique, while maintaining as long as...
