Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) is now commonplace technology in food regulatory agencies. Food and environmental samples are routinely analyzed using WGS techniques. Dr. Eric Brown will discuss the impact of WGS analysis on their public health efforts, not only in outbreak investigations but also in routine monitoring and surveillance programs. This presentation will share information on how the transition to WGS methods has enhanced the ability of public health agencies to respond to risks associated with food pathogens and prevent foodborne illnesses and outbreaks.
