Bacteriophages as antimicrobial agents against bacterial contaminants in yeast fermentation processesDownload
Bacterial contaminants are ubiquitous in yeast fermentation processes for biofuel production. In general, they compete with yeasts for nutrients, reducing overall production yield. The present project investigates the application of bacteriophages (phages), viruses infecting and killing...
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...
