Bacteria and fungi play an important role in the health of humans and animals. With the help of the models that are present and are being developed, studies can be conducted to the biological effects of specific micro-organisms. This by means of co-cultures of cell lines or organoïden with micro-organisms. Fermentations may be performed both anaerobically and aerobically. Identification of micro-organisms is an important theme. Infrastructure and experience to screen for alternatives to antibiotics is present. Research into pathogens is also possible.
a). Identification of human microbiome
d). Alternatives to antibiotics
