Lab Research

Marcelino was a visiting scientist from 2003 to 2004 who worked on characterizing the physiochemical and microfloral changes in a Portuguese raw cow's milk cheese. This included identifying the most abundant lactic acid bacteria species and searching for the presence of pathogens, such as L. monocytogenes, using classical microbiological and PCR-based techniques.
