VetBact - culturing bacteriological knowledge for veterinarians

Johansson, Karl-Erik


In 2004, Karl-Erik Johansson, then professor of veterinary bacteriology at the veterinary school at Uppsala in Sweden, was asked by his students for a list of the most important bacteria and the diseases that they cause. So began the development of VetBact, an online database giving details of the bacterial species with most relevance to veterinary medicine. The non-commercial database,, has since grown and can now be accessed by veterinarians and others worldwide.
