DISSERTATION: DNA-based detection and characterisation of strictly anaerobic beer-spoilage bacteria

16.12.2009 11:16

 

VTT’s Research Scientist Riikka Juvonen defended her thesis: “DNA-based detection and characterisation of strictly anaerobic beer-spoilage bacteria” on 11th December at the University of Helsinki. Routine cultivation methods for detection of strictly anaerobic bacteria in breweries are time-consuming and do not allow species identification. The main aim of Riikka’s doctoral studies was to utilise DNA-based techniques in order to improve detection and identification of the Sporomusa sub-branch beer-spoilage bacteria and to increase understanding of their biodiversity, evolution and natural sources.
