Development and validation of Campylobacter microarrays for virulence detec
Program Chicken Meat
Research organisation Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology
Objective summary To utilise existing knowledge on Campylobacter spp. to select the most appropriate virulence factors for use in the development of a Campylobacter microarray. To design and select appropriate oligonucleotides for use in a Campylobacter array throughthe use of bacterial genomic techniques and alignment of gene sequences from known virulence factors to the Campylobacter genome. To investigate the design of microchips for the immobilisation of oligonucleotides and hybridsation conditions for simultaneous detection of a variety of selected virulence factors.
