The development of whole genome sequencing (WGS) has improved foodborne illness surveillance and outbreak detection. Use of WGS has led to the recognition of some pathogenic strains that cause reoccurring, emerging, or persisting (REP) illness.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and other federal and state partners are tracking several REP strains.

In this webinar, you will hear from FDA and CDC representatives as they share information on REP strain definitions, current knowledge, as well as their perspectives and findings from ongoing REP tracking activities and foodborne outbreak investigations.
