Project description

The goal of this project is to gain a better insight in the molecular mechanisms responsible for antimicrobial resistance in Burkholderia cepacia complex isolates in planktonic and sessile cells. To this end we will carry out a full transcriptome analysis, using microarrays and qPCR
