Project Details


Biocide resistance in bacteria is a developing phenomenon and has been linked to antibiotic resistance. In this project, we will determine how sublethal concentrations of biocides affect tolerance development, antibiotic resistance and virulence changes. At Aqua we work with Listeria monocytogenes, but the project group also adresses Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella and other Gram-negative bacteria.
