Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Genetics
  • Microbiology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Arcobacter, Arcobacter cryaerophilus, Arcobacter butzleri, Microbiology and Campylobacter. The study incorporates disciplines such as Multiplex polymerase chain reaction, Food science and Campylobacter concisus in addition to Arcobacter cryaerophilus. His Arcobacter butzleri research incorporates themes from Campylobacteraceae, Feces, Nalidixic acid, Campylobacter fetus and Campylobacter upsaliensis.

His Feces research includes themes of Veterinary medicine and Arcobacter species. Kurt Houf combines subjects such as 16S ribosomal RNA, Campylobacter jejuni, Diarrhea and Polymerase chain reaction with his study of Microbiology. His study in Campylobacter is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Pathogen and Broiler.

His most cited work include:

  • Arcobacter species in humans. (258 citations)
  • Development of a multiplex PCR assay for the simultaneous detection and identification of Arcobacter butzleri, Arcobacter cryaerophilus and Arcobacter skirrowii (243 citations)
  • Arcobacter cibarius sp. nov., isolated from broiler carcasses. (128 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Microbiology, Veterinary medicine, Arcobacter, Salmonella and Campylobacter. His research investigates the connection between Microbiology and topics such as Campylobacter jejuni that intersect with problems in Genetic diversity. His studies in Veterinary medicine integrate themes in fields like Prevalence, Contamination and Food contaminant.

The concepts of his Arcobacter study are interwoven with issues in Campylobacteraceae and Feces. His research integrates issues of Helicobacter and Broiler in his study of Campylobacter. His Arcobacter cryaerophilus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Multiplex polymerase chain reaction and Polymerase chain reaction.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (51.28%)
  • Veterinary medicine (35.26%)
  • Arcobacter (28.85%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Microbiology (51.28%)
  • Veterinary medicine (35.26%)
  • Yersinia enterocolitica (6.41%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Microbiology, Veterinary medicine, Yersinia enterocolitica, Campylobacter and Protozoa. Kurt Houf has included themes like Arcobacter, Arcobacter butzleri and Antibiotic resistance in his Microbiology study. His research combines Arcobacter cryaerophilus and Arcobacter butzleri.

His Veterinary medicine research integrates issues from Salmonella and Pseudomonas. His Yersinia enterocolitica research also works with subjects such as

  • Yersiniosis, which have a strong connection to Tonsil, Serotype and Direct plating,
  • Yersinia and related Serology and Animal science. His Campylobacter research incorporates elements of Food microbiology, Campylobacter jejuni and Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Prevalence of Arcobacter Species among Humans, Belgium, 2008-2013 (73 citations)
  • Novel lactic acid bacteria isolated from the bumble bee gut: Convivina intestini gen. nov., sp. nov., Lactobacillus bombicola sp. nov., and Weissella bombi sp. nov. (36 citations)
  • Contamination of freshly slaughtered pig carcasses with enteropathogenic Yersinia spp.: Distribution, quantification and identification of risk factors. (31 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Bacteria
  • Genetics
  • Pathogen

His main research concerns Microbiology, Campylobacter jejuni, Arcobacter butzleri, Protozoa and Yersinia enterocolitica. Kurt Houf has researched Microbiology in several fields, including Direct plating and Campylobacter. His work in Campylobacter jejuni addresses subjects such as Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, which are connected to disciplines such as Campylobacteriosis, Campylobacter coli, Nalidixic acid and Arcobacter species.

His Arcobacter butzleri study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Arcobacter. Particularly relevant to Arcobacter cryaerophilus is his body of work in Arcobacter. His Yersinia enterocolitica research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Agar plate, Yersinia, Tonsil and Serotype.
