Project: Antimicrobial resistance in the microbiota of broilers: assessment of public health hazards

01-NOV-06 – 31-OCT-09

The main objective of this research project is to measure the occurence of antimicrobial resistance in the microbiota of broilers, in order to develop a statistical relevant monitoring programme and to evaluate the public health hazards involved. Hereby, molecular investigations of horizontal trasnfer of cephalosporin resistance from E. coli into Salmonella and other Enterobacteriaceae of human importance will be undertaken.
