  • Lone, Abdul G.; Selinger, L. Brent; Uwiera, Richard R. E.; Xu, Yong; Inglis, G. Douglas (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesLethbridge Research CentreUniversity of LethbridgeUniversity of Alberta, 2013)
    Background: Campylobacter jejuni causes enterocolitis in humans, but does not incite disease in asymptomatic carrier animals. To survive in the intestine, C. jejuni must successfully compete with the microbiota and overcome ...

Douglas (Public LIbrary of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesAgriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research CentreUniversity of LethbridgePublic Health Agency of CanadaUniversity of Alberta, 2014)
    Campylobacteriosis incited by C. jejuni is a significant enteric disease of human beings. A person working with two reference strains of C. jejuni National Collection of Type Cultures (NCTC) 11168 developed symptoms ...
  • Webb, Andrew L.; Kruczkiewicz, Peter; Selinger, L. Brent; Inglis, G. Douglas; Taboada, Eduardo N. (BioMed CentralArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesAgriculture and Agri-Food CanadaUniversity of LethbridgePublic Health Agency of Canada, 2015)
    Background Molecular typing methods are critical for epidemiological investigations, facilitating disease outbreak detection and source identification. Study of the epidemiology of the emerging human pathogen Arcobacter ...
  • Webb, Andrew L.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological SciencesArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2016)
    The pathogenicity of Arcobacter butzleri remains enigmatic, in part due to a lack of genomic data and tools for comprehensive detection and genotyping of this bacterium. Comparative whole genome sequence analysis was ...
  • Reti, Kristen L.; Thomas, Matthew C.; Yanke, L. Jay; Selinger, L. Brent; Inglis, G. Douglas (BioMed CentralArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesAgriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research CentreUniversity of Lethbridge, 2013)
    Background: Antimicrobial growth promoters (AGPs) are antimicrobial agents administered to livestock in feed for prolonged periods to enhance feed efficiency. Beef cattle are primarily finished in confined feeding operations ...

Wade; Thomas, James E.; Inglis, G. Douglas; Taboada, Eduardo N. (Frontiers MediaArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of LethbridgeNational Microbiology Laboratory at LethbridgeLethbridge Research and Development Centre, 2017)
    Campylobacter jejuni is a leading human enteric pathogen worldwide and despite an improved understanding of its biology, ecology, and epidemiology, limited tools exist for identifying strains that are likely to cause ...
  • Costa, Estela; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, c2010Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2010)
    The novel hypothesis that antimicrobial growth promoters (AGP) function by modulating the mammalian immune system was tested. Sampling methods to characterize the mucosa-associated microbiota of the murine intestine by ...
  • Costa, Estela; Uwiera, Richard R. E.; Kastelic, John P.; Selinger, L. Brent; Inglis, G. Douglas (BioMed CentralArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesLethbridge Research CentreUniversity of LethbridgeUniversity of Alberta, 2011)
    Background: The development of efficacious alternatives to antimicrobial growth promoters (AGP) in livestock production is an urgent issue, but is hampered by a lack of knowledge regarding the mode of action of AGP. ...
  • Thomas, Matthew C.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological SciencesArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2013)
    The temporal dynamics of Campylobacter jejuni and protistan community structure in southwestern Alberta rivers were studied over a 1 -year period. Culture-based isolations of C. jejuni were predominantly from the winter ...
