Jens Bo Andersen





I am a molecular microbiologist with a thorough knowledge of bacterial physiology and a wide range of molecular biological techniques such as PCR, quantitative PCR, Western blotting and Micro-array analysis. I have more than 15 years of practical experience with cloning in bacteria, including construction of mutants, and the development of genetic reporter systems based on fluorescent proteins.

Currently, my research is focused within intestinal microbiology and prevention of intestinal infections caused by Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella. It is believed that prebiotic carbohydrates in the diet can modify the original bacterial flora in the intestine and thereby improve the body's resistance to pathogenic bacteria, which have been ingested through food.

Earlier I have been involved in research regarding: Virulence in Listeria monocytogenes, bacterial communication (Quorom sensing), bacterial biofilms (mono- and multispecies communities), the development of genetic reporter systems, development of new fluorescent protein variants and protein secretion in bacteria.
