Biocides are chemical substances capable of killing or inhibiting bacteria and their use have become an integrated part of the industrialized world. The potential negative effects of biocides on development of virulence and antimicorbial resistance in bacteria is to a large extent unknown. The purpose of this project is to determine the response of bacteria to selected biocides. The work will include studies of bacterial gene transcription, as well as determination of mutation-rates and horizontal gene-transfer when exposed to different biocides.
