Project Details

Description

ACE-ART is a EU STREP project under the 6th framework programme. The main aim of the project is to generate knowledge on the source of food-related antibiotic resistant bacteria, their genetic composition and potential for resistance transfer.

The bacteria of interest include Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Lactococcus and Streptococcus thermophilus.

The National Food Institute (Andrea Wilcks) is coordinator for WP2: Transfer of antibiotic resistance genes in non-pathogenic bacteria associated with the food chain.
