Molecular detection and characterization of Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp. and Campylobacter spp. isolated from broiler meat in Jamalpur, Tangail, Netrokona and Kishoreganj districts of Bangladesh

The study was conducted to isolate, identify and characterize bacterial samples from broiler meat collected from 20 different upazilla markets of Jamalpur, Tangail, Netrokona and Kishoreganj districts of Bangladesh. A total of 20 samples were subjected to bacteriological isolation and identification, and the isolated bacteria were subjected to antimicrobial susceptibility testing using disc diffusion method. Among the...

Screening of human diarrhoeal samples in Mymensingh city of Bangladesh for the isolation, identification and antimicrobial resistance profiles of Campylobacter spp.

Campylobacter spp. (Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli) are one of the major cause of food-borne bacterial diarrhoea in human worldwide. This study was conducted for the isolation, identification and antimicrobial resistance profiling of Campylobacter spp. from diarrhoeal samples of human collected from Surya Kanta (SK) hospital, Mymensingh Medical College, Mymensingh during the period of August 2016 to October...

Assessment of dominant bacterial strains isolated from Ntoba mbodi, an indigenous African alkaline-fermented food, and their potential enzyme activities

Ntoba mbodi is a stable and long-life alkaline-fermented food and the domestic-scale production depends upon microorganisms from the local environment. Previous studies on bacteria in Ntoba mbodi have reported the presence of Bacillus related species and other bacterial taxa. But the abundance of these bacteria in Ntoba mbodi still needs to be determined to assess their ecological importance in this particular...

Isolation and characterization of starch degrading rhizobacteria from soil of Jimma University Main Campus, Ethiopia

Starch degrading bacteria are important for different industries such as food, fermentation, textile, and paper. The aim of this study is to isolate and characterize bacteria able to degrade starch from the rhizospheres of various plants at four sites located in Jimma University main campus. Collected soil samples were labeled as kobo (AJUMC), Avocado (BJUMC), Banana (CJUMC), and Cana indica (DJUMC) respectively. Soil...
