Project: Effect of mild preservation method on the induction of stress resistance and increased cirulence of Listeria monocytogenes
- project duration
- 01-OCT-04 – 30-SEP-08
- Recently, scientists have become awared that by applying mild preservation methods foor food preservation, surviving bacteria could show an increased stress resistence and virulence. By this, a selection could occur for highly virulent and resistant food pathogens in foods and production environments. This research investigates the above mentioned phenomena for Listeria monocytogenes.
