At a conference at the ZHAW in autumn 2019, the ZHAW was already mentioned as a "peat-free competence center". In order for the ...
Antibiotic resistances in Enterobacteria
Atypical Enterobacteria are frequently misidentified in clinical diagnostics due to unsettled taxonomy and noisy reference databases. Despite of their environmental origin, they regularly appear in clinical samples and increasingly display multi-drug resistances (MDRs) that are acquired during adaptation to the ...
Characterization of the bitter compounds found in hemp, and application toward beer production
