Objective Summary

– To utilise existing knowledge on Campylobacter spp. to select the most appropriate virulence factors for use in the development of a Campylobacter microarray. – To design and select appropriate oligonucleotides for use in a Campylobacter array throughthe use of bacterial genomic techniques and alignment of gene sequences from known virulence factors to the Campylobacter genome. – To investigate the design of microchips for the immobilisation of oligonucleotides and hybridsation conditions for simultaneous detection of a variety of selected virulence factors.
