  • Hicks, Clair (PI)
  • Crooks, Peter (CoI)

Grants and Contracts Details


A model system using non-pathogenic bacteria (Lacotcoccus lactis ssp. lactis) will be used to detennine if bacteriophage peptides or a synthetic peptide can be used to deliver a reporter for rapid identification of specific bacterial cells. Phage peptides derived from the hydrolysis(.02% Ficin at 26°C for 6 h) of
