Research project (§ 26 & § 27)
Duration : 2017-09-01 - 2018-08-31

This project aims at a monitoring of nitrate and nitrite during sugar production in order to be able to assess the effect of these substances on their appearance in molassis. The methods to be developed will be tailored to the complex sample matrix.

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.

Within the project the microbiota of selected sourdoughs will be analysed in detail. Next to the molecular monitoring of the microecological dynamic of the sourdoughs lactic acid bacteria and yeasts will be isolated, characterised and stored in a strain bank. The aim of the collaboration with the project partner Versuchsanstalt für Getreideverarbeitung (VG) is to gain the knowledge about the formulation of sourdoughs for the production of high quality bread. Together with the partner an Austrian sourdough database will be set up that will be used by the project partner to help Austrian backeries to improve the quality of their products.
