Project: Interpretation of Raman spectra of bacteria

project duration
01-OCT-04 – 30-SEP-08
In this project, bacteria are studied by Raman spectroscopy, aiming to develop a fast identification protocal. This Ph. D. research focuses on the interpretation of the Raman data, reflecting the molecular composition of the bacteria. Different biomarker molecules and metabolic processes are studied. A protocol is established to assign bacterial Raman bands to specific molecules.
