Significance and Impact of the Study: It was demonstrated that hydrogen production using food waste was influenced by the hydraulic retention time (HRT), and closely related to changes in microbial communities together with differences in metabolic patterns (e.g. volatile fatty acids, lactate, etc.). The decrease in the HRT led to the dominance of lactic acid bacteria within the microbial...

Abstract This study evaluated the survival responses of L. monocytogenes strains (individually and mixed) in a soft lactic cheese following acid and salt stress exposures. The Weibull and log‐linear with tail models were used to predict the survival responses of the pathogen in the cheese stored at 4°C for 15 d. Both models showed a good prediction accuracy for stressed L. monocytogenes cells (Af...

Despite the advent of new techniques for genetic engineering of bacteria, allelic exchange through homologous recombination remains an important tool for genetic analysis. Currently, sacB-based vector systems are often used for allelic exchange, but counterselection escape, which prevents isolation of cells with the desired mutation, occasionally limits their utility. To circumvent this, we...
