Food safety: Significant reduction of Campylobacter in chickens

The aim is to reduce the number of people becoming sick due to Campylobacter infected chickens through the development of a novel feed additive product from transgenic barley seeds. The feed additive contains a bioactive protein and can result in a significant 3-log reduction of Campylobacter count in the chicken gut. Additionally a cost-reward decision-making software demonstrating the benefits to the farmer will be generated.
