Final Report - BACELL HEALTH (Bacterial stress management relevant to infectious disease and biopharmaceuticals)

Project ID: 503468


This is the final report for the BACELL HEALTH which was a research and technological development project that aimed to address both the negative and positive characteristics of bacterial behaviour. As outlined in the report this was done by undertaking an integrated and in-depth study of the response of Gram-positive bacteria to stresses encountered by pathogens during infection and by industrially important strains during bio-processes.

The document explains that in addition to improved production strains and improved production strategies, the BACELL HEALTH project has also resulted in the identification of key genes for virulence traits in certain Gram-positive pathogens. This provides leads toward the identification of novel drug targets and finally, the production of novel anti-infectives.
