Research Project: EPIDEMIOLOGY OF SHIGA-TOXIN PRODUCING ESCHERICHIA COLI (STEC) IN SWINE

Location: Molecular Characterization of Foodborne Pathogens

Project Number: 8072-42000-070-02
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Mar 01, 2011
End Date: May 01, 2012

Objective:
Long term goal is to reduce the zoonotic transmission of food-borne pathogens in pork. The overall research objective of this proposal is to fill a critical information gap regarding the epidemiology of shiga-toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) shedding in swine.

Approach:
The approach is phenotypic and genotypic characterization of STEC isolates from longitudinally sampled swine.
