CDC expands use of Whole Genome Sequencing in Foodborne Illness

Whole genome sequencing (WGS) provides insight into the genetic fingerprint of a pathogen by sequencing the chemical building blocks that make up its DNA and is increasingly being employed in food safety efforts. Since 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has regularly turned to WGS to better understand foodborne pathogens, including identifying the … Continue Reading

FDA Increasingly Using Whole Genome Sequencing to Achieve Food Safety Goals

As background, whole genome sequencing (WGS) essentially provides insight into the genetic fingerprint of a pathogen by sequencing the chemical building blocks that make up its DNA.  Since 2012, FDA has regularly turned to WGS to better understand foodborne pathogens, including identifying the nature and source of microbes that contaminate food and cause outbreaks of … Continue Reading
