TYPES OF E. COLI THAT CAUSE DIARRHOEA
Grant number: 1067428 | Funding period: 2014 - 2017
E. coli is a normal inhabitant of the human intestine, but some varieties can cause serious infections that may lead to the premature death of children, especially in less developed countries. The aims of this study are to learn more about these harmful varieties of E. coli and to enhance our ability to detect them in samples from patients and the environment.
