TP10: Serotype and host specific colonisation of enteropathogenic Yersinia and its persistence in the host and in food
Host-specific colonisation mechnisms of enteropathogenic Yersinia isolates from humans, animals and food will be analyzed. We will study
This will help us to draw conclusions regarding the general host-specific colonisation mechanisms and give information about important metabolic processes during the infection or persistence in food. New therapies, diagnostics and different feeding strategies can be designed to eliminate or reduce the number of pathogens in the animal.
