Research Project: Molecular Mechanisms Underlying the Interactions of Enteric Pathogens with Postharvest Leafy Vegetables

Location: Produce Safety and Microbiology Research

Project Number: 2030-42000-046-02
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Feb 01, 2011
End Date: Jan 31, 2015

Objective:
Identify the molecular mechanisms that underlie the interaction of enteric pathogens with fresh-cut leafy vegetables.

Approach:
Transcriptomics in Salmonella and pathogenic E. coli; bacterial population dynamics on fresh-cut lettuce and spinach; and use of lettuce lines and Arabidopsis mutants that are defective in specific basal defense signaling pathways.
