As part of the project, the microbiota of selected natural sourdoughs is analysed in detail. The dominant lactic acid bacteria and yeasts are isolated, purified, identified, characterized and stored in a strain collection. The aim of the close cooperation with the project partner Versuchsanstalt für Getreideverarbeitung (vg) is the microecological description of the sourdough microbiota with regard to the development of premium bakery products, which should then be made available to the Austrian mills and bakers through the project partner vg.

Within the scope of the described project, antibiotic resistance genes are detected and identified on plasmids, isolated from Escherichia coli transconjugants by means of a specific microarray-based technique. The plasmids to be investigated were obtained in the context of a previous project by the application of in situ mating with a specific Escherichia coli recipient strain directly from samples, which are assigned to the animal production chain. The applied microarray technique was tailored in a previous research work.
