Current Position

Ruixi is investigating the effect of pre-growth condition and genetic variation of Listeria monocytogenes on the antimicrobial activity of nisin in cold-smoked salmon. He is also working on the validation of such effects at low inoculum levels, and the identification of L. monocytogenes genes important for resistance to nisin and survival in cold-smoked salmon.
