Project: Improved genomic identification of lactic acid bacteria and acetic acid bacteria
- project duration
- 01-DEC-05 – 31-MAR-08
- Identification databases for lactic acid and acetic acid bacteria currently rely on standardized, but non-automized and interlaboratory irreproducible fingerprints. For both taxa, a robust multilocus sequence-based system will be set up and automized using a robotic system. Databases will be constructed for reliable, high-throughput identification of isolates and delineation of existing and new taxa (eg from poorly studied ecosystems).
