During this project, the microbiome of washing machines and worn textiles, and changes due to washing processes will be investigated with a particular interest on the presence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Extensive metabolome analyses of microbial metabolites from relevant sample materials will be performed with mass spectrometry to determine relevant metabolic activities of the microorganisms.
