Campylobacter poultry control
Project description

Poultry meat contaminated with Campylobacter jejuni is the most important source of human campylobacteriosis. During this project, we will attempt to reduce the infection load and shedding in broilers during primary production, by interacting with the mechanism of colonization using organic acids and antibacterial compounds produced by lactic acid producing bacteria.
