Quantification and management of the microbial diversity in ecosystems.

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos GOA-BOF

In this study a number of techniques that will evaluate bacterial diversity in ecosystems, both qualitatively and quantitatively, will be developed. The evolution of the bacterial diversity will be studied after introduction of biotic (pathogens, nitrifiers, etc.) and/or abiotic (pH,...

Genomic and virulenceprofiling of the emerging foodborne Arcobacter species

Prof. Dr. Kurt Houf BOF-Joint PhD

This project elucidates the presence and expression of genes supporting the pathogenicity and survival capacity of the human related Arcobacter species on food and anthropogenic environments. Using genome analysis, genes are tested in in vitro gene expression studies under several...

Double blind study on the identification of Pseudomonads.

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos

In a double blind approach 600 named pseudomonas strains were distributed over 8 internationally (US-2-, Canada, Spain, Thailand, China, Sweden and Belgium) recognised laboratories for Microbiology for the identification of bacteria. The methodology applied complies with the in house...

Interactions between free-living amoebae and foodborne pathogens

Prof. Dr. Kurt Houf BOF

Despite thorough disinfection protocols and hygiene monitoring during food production and processing, human pathogenic bacteria often persist in food related environments and on food. The foodborne pathogenic bacteria Campylobacter jejuni, Salmonella enterica,...

Democratic governance: a reflexive theory of collective action

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos

The project aims at examining the exploration and exploitation of microbial research commons by bundling the contributions and intelectual property rights in sharing biological information. Further development of strainInfo.net bioportal that is regarded as a working model system to test...

Effect of preservation on the psychrophilic Pseudomonas microbiota in raw farm milk.

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos IWT

The project aims at studying the effect of cooling on the development of psychrotrophic pseudomonads in raw milk and also the relation between enzyme excretion by this psychrophilic microbiota, and the milk quality. A culture-independent detection method for the follow up and the...
