Genomic detection of selected Bacillus s.l. representatives during gelatine production.

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos IWT

Bacteria attributed to Bacillus and related genera contaminate and survive gelatine production processes and hereby negatively affect the quality and safety of the end product. This project aims at optimizing and extending a real-time PCR detection method for the most worrisome...

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...

Firmicute denitrification as paradigm for the ‘ecological coherence’ principle in soil functioning.

Prof. Dr. Paul De Vos FWO

This project will investigate the recently proposed ecological coherence hypothesis, which states that bacteria in higher taxonomic ranks share specific ecological traits, and thus can be differentially affected by (changing) environmental conditions. Gram-positive denitrifiers will be used as...

Endosymbiotic bacteria in coenocytic green algae - exploration of a partnership.

Prof. Dr. Anne Willems FWO

Endosymbiotic bacteria are reported to be of common occurrence in coenocytic green algae and may be associated with various metabolic functions. In Bryopsis bacteria are present at every stage of development including the gametes, indicating that the endosymbionts are vertically...

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...
