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...

Isolation of facultative, multifunctional methane oxidizing bacteria for industrial biotechnology.

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos IWT

This projects aims to develop an innovative methodology for selective enrichment of facultative, multifunctional methanotrophs. Obtained MOB will be further implemented in a lab-scale set-up whereby bioremediation, reduction of methane emission and production of secondary metabolites will be...

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,...

Institutional capacity of the network of Moroccan Coordinated Collections of Micro-organisms (CCMM) for recovery of microorganisms with biotechnological potential.

Prof. Dr. Anne Willems BTC

The aim is to reinforce and develop the CCMM network of Moroccan research groups by transfer of know-how with the Laboratory of Microbiology and the BCCM/LMG bacteria collection. In particular by valorisation of deposited strains en by elaboration of the collections through prospection...

Improvement of the identification potential of fluorescent pseudomonads: a molecular approach.

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos Federaal Wetenschapsbeleid

The genus Pseudomonas has been a dumping ground for Gram negative rods, motile by polar flagella. As a consequence of this vague definition, the genus encompassed a number of species groups that were phylogenetically very diverse. This project aims at improving the taxonomic frame of the...

Improved genomic identification of lactic acid and acetic acid bacteria.

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos Federaal Wetenschapsbeleid

Identification databases for lactic acid and acetic acid bacteria currently rely on standardized, but non-automated and inter laboratory irreproducible fingerprints. For both bacterial groups, a robust multilocus sequence-based system will be set up and automated using a robotic system....
