Our research is focused on functional genomics and proteomics of non-pathogenic lactic acid bacteria (dairy starters, probiotic lactobacilli) and pathogenic bacteria (streptococci, staphylococci) that are adapted to milk-environment.
We exploit omics-level approaches combined with microbiological analyses to uncover important mechanistic details of how dairy starters and probiotic bacteria cope with dairy processes and harsh conditions of the human gut, and how milk-related pathogens regulate virulence and develop drug resistance. The ultimate goal of these research projects is to provide novel information to gain maximal benefit of probiotic and dairy bacteria as well as to combat milk-related pathogens.
