Inspections deemed mission-critical will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The agency reached this decision as a result of travel advisories involving U.S. Government employees as well as restrictions imposed on foreign visitors by certain countries.

In this webinar, Dr. Jonathan Jacobs will review the technical and logistical fundamentals of implementing end-to-end sequencing and bioinformatics analysis protocols for routine food testing and surveillance.
