IMPROVED IDENTIFICATION AND DETECTION METHODS FOR FISH PATHOGENIC VIBRIO SPECIES

Objective



The major objectives of the proposed research project are:

1. to study the diversity of about 800 Vibrio strains, associated with pathological conditions in marine fish by a polyphasic study.

2. to develop finger-printing methods for Vibrio species, and to develop databases of reference fingerprints for the rapid and accurate identification of unknown isolates.

3. to compare and to evaluate the utility and efficiency of the different finger- printing methods for identification and evaluate their potential for developing early detection methods for Vibrio species.

4. to correlate the diversity within Vibrio species with pathogenicity, as determined in a standardized confrontation test system towards fishes.
