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...

This project is centered around the theory that diet type, through its metabolic interaction with the intestinal microbiota, has a considerable impact on intestinal health and general well-being of captive cheetahs. It can be hypothesized that the degree of...

(Bilateral collaboration in the frame of GOA project)

The aim of this project is to investigate cases of spoilage occurring on packed and stored under chilling temperatures food products, that show low microbial contamination according to the widely applied enumeration methods...
