Source tracking for the food industry
Recent advances in rapid, high throughput DNA sequencing have revolutionised the study of biology, and have the capacity to do the same for food safety and security.
So called ‘Next Generation Sequencing’ (NGS) technologies have a range of applications, including the sequencing of microbial genomes and culture-free identification of microbial communities. This whitepaper will look at the implications of this for the food industry range from source tracking of bacterial contaminants, identification of spoilage communities, and authentication of the origins of foodstuffs.
