Investigation of the beef supply-chain microbiome and pathogen controls
MetadataShow full item record
Foodborne illness associated with pathogenic bacteria is a global public health and economic challenge. Understanding the ecology of foodborne pathogens within the meat industry is critical to mitigating this challenge. The diversity of microorganisms (pathogenic and non-pathogenic) that exists within the food and meat industries complicates efforts to understand pathogen ecology. Further, little is known about the interaction of pathogens within the microbiome throughout the whole meat production chain. Here, the combined use of a metagenomics approach and shotgun sequencing technology was ...
