Project description

The aim of the project is to create live attenuated Salmonella strains, which protect broiler chickens after oral administration against colonization by Salmonella. These colonization-inhibition (CI) strains are produced by introducing mutations into the genome so these strains can no longer persist in the broiler, while maintaining protection against colonization.
