Identification (species-level) / Typing (sub-species-level).
Phenotypic and genotypic-based methods are applied for analysing microorganisms, including: morphological and metabolic profiling; cell-fatty acids (CFA / FAME) profiling and volatile fatty acid (VFA) determination for anaerobic bacteria; MALDI-TOF MS profiling of cell proteins; DNA sequence comparative analyses for 16S rRNA genes and selected taxa-specific house-keeping genes; G+C content; DNA-DNA hybridisation for genomic DNA similarity analyses.
All methods are explained in English on our site. Details and results of strain characterizations are displayed in our site.
