Probiotic administration as add-on therapy in ulcerative colitis and pouchitis.

Prof. Dr. Geert Huys IWT

A probiotic strain (Bifidobacterium breve UCP0911) was selected with anti-inflammatory properties and hence, important potential in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). During well-designed clinical trials, the potential of the selected probiotic in IBD...

String test: a new tool to improve the diagnosis of tuberculosis and the detection of drug resistance in children

BELDIVA - Phase 1, Belgian Microbial Diversity Exploration near the Princess Elisabeth Station, Antarctica

Prof. Dr. Anne Willems Federaal Wetenschapsbeleid

This project is aimed at sampling representative habitats (potentially) containing microorganisms in an area of 200 km around the Belgian Princess Elisabeth Base (PES), Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica. In particular it will involve two exploratory field campaigns in an area of about...

Diversity of lactic acid bacteria from traditional fermented food in northern Vietnam.

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme BTC

Developing countries have very diverse food consumption patterns and agricultural production systems but miss food processing technologies that meet the challenges of food safety, food security and nutrition problems. The aim of the present project is to study and preserve the LAB...

Prototype of a distributed FAME information system for improved identifications of Prokaryotes.

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos Federaal Wetenschapsbeleid

The project focuses on the integration of the fatty acid databases from several European microbiological research institutes. It demonstrates how previously unseen patterns can be learned from the information network, resulting in improved discriminatory power of fatty acid analysis for...

Role of free-living protozoa and biofilm formation on the evolution and persistence of foodborne pathogens in natural and food-related environments

Prof. Dr. Kurt Houf BOF-Joint PhD

The project studies the mechanisms underlying settling and persistence of pathogens in biofilms and to identify gene targets that facilitate inter-specific synergistic and antagonistic effects. This will facilitate the understanding of the interactions of pathogens within a multi-species setting...

Diversity of rhizobia from Belgian leguminous plants: a molecular inventory

Prof. Dr. Anne Willems, Prof. Dr. Peter Dawyndt BOF-UGent

A molecular inventory of rhizobia from Belgian leguminous plants will be made. A collection of local rhizobia will be assembled. After initial screening by RFLP, identification will be achieved by multi-locus sequence analysis of housekeeping genes. Reference organisms will be included...
