The goal of the Project was the development and establishment of a suitable molecular protocol to obtain a genetic fingerprint (or “microbial pedigree”) of the microbial contaminants found in art and cultural heritage objects, -i.e. paintings and sculptures- using the Nanopore sequencing technology platform. The main purpose was to develop a protocol that was easy for the operator to use, fast and relatively low cost.

ITumor genesis is based on komplex interaction between environmental influences and gene regulation. In the course of tumor development there exists a competition for nutrient between the host and the tumor. Special modification of the microbiome is expected to improve the situation of the host and to provide more nutrients. Several strategies will be tested including faaces transplantation, implantation of specialised lactic acid bacteria and the application of bacteriocins

Development of a decision tree for the correct application of lime coatings on plaster with special reference to the risk of microbial contamination and biodeterioration. Sampling areas will be in the monastry of Mauerbach (Office of Care of Monuments Austria) in an outdoor area: three different plaster surfaces (lime, llime-cement and NHL5) are coated with 6 different paints. Physical and microbiological parameters are analysed after expossure for sevreal month.
