Differences in HAV seroprevalence were found for different age groups, with a large increase in(More)
The intrasubspecies diversity of six strains of Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis was investigated at the genomic level and in terms of phenotypic and transcriptomic profiles in an ultrafiltration cheese model. The six strains were isolated from various sources, but all exhibited a dairy phenotype (growth in ultrafiltration cheese model and high(More)
