Next-generation sequencing and bioinformatics are changing our understanding of the role of comparative food microbiology, from isolate identification and strain discrimination to more detailed genomic analysis aimed at predicting the antibiotic resistance or pathogenicity. In this webinar, Dr. Jasna Kovac will review the technical and bioinformatics fundamentals of implementing whole-genome sequencing for routine food testing and surveillance. 

Featured Speaker: Dr. Jasna Kovac - Professor of Food Safety at Penn State University
