Project: European Burkholderia cepacia complex Referral Laboratory and Repository

project duration
01-JAN-03 – 31-OCT-04
abstract
The project aims: - to confirm identification of B. cepacia complex and similar bacterial isolates from CF patients - to monitor the emergence of novel and rare CF pathogens - to act as a strain repository for the preservation of all these isolates and create a database for the accompanying information - to genotype isolates to investigate potential nosocomial or person-to-person transmission - to interact with support other researchers by exploiting the strain collection and the information therein
