A common fungal associate of the spruce bark beetle metabolizes the stilbene defenses of Norway spruceDownload
Norway spruce (Picea abies) forests suffer periodic fatal attacks by the bark beetle Ips typographus and its fungal associate, Ceratocystis polonica. Norway spruce protects itself against fungal and bark beetle invasion by the production of terpenoid resins, but it is unclear whether resins or...
Developing and Testing a Framework to Measure the Sanitation Efficacy on a Random Particle Level in Composting IndustryDownload
Both direct and indirect process validation regulations are being used to ensure the safety of compost products. The North American guidelines specify upper limits for certain pathogenic and indicator microbes, which are presumably achieved by exposing every particle of compost to temperatures...
Surfaces contaminated with Staphylococcus aureus can play an important role in its transmission throughout communities and hospitals. Previous research on S. aureus surface survivability has generally used high density inocula (>105 CFU mL-1), which may lead to cryptic growth of the cells, as...
Specific detection of Campylobacter jejuni using the bacteriophage NCTC 12673 receptor binding protein as a probeDownload
Campylobacter jejuni is found in the intestines of poultry, cattle, swine, wild birds and pet animals and is the major cause of foodborne gastroenteritis in developed countries. We report the use of the receptor binding protein (RBP) of Campylobacter bacteriophage NCTC 12673 for the specific...
