Project: Identification of virulence genes of high virulence Staphylococcus aureus strains from rabbits

project duration
01-JAN-06 – 31-OCT-10
The aim of this project is to identify genes that contribute to the virulence of high virulence Stpahylococcus aureus strains from rabbits. This will be ahieved by genomic comparaison of high and low virulence strains, followed by the construction of knockout mutants for these genes. These knockout mutants will be tested in vivo for their virulence capacity.
