Final Report - VCSRNAHV (Investigating sRNAs as the master on/off switch of vibrio cholerae virulence)

Project ID: 249154
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

Cholera is a severe diarrhoeal disease caused by the bacterium vibrio cholerae and is responsible for thousands of deaths each year. Existing treatments disarm the bacteria rather than killing them, reducing the selective pressure that leads to antibiotic resistance.

Therefore, the VCSRNAHV project, which was funded under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), aimed to elucidate the details of intra-molecular interactions in order to further understand the mechanism of v. cholerae virulence and create a foundation for new treatment and disease prevention strategies.

This final activity report provides an overview of the project background and objectives and then focuses on the undertaken activities and the obtained results. The document closes with a summary of the anticipated project impact.
