Using Next-Generation Sequencing to Detect Food Borne Pathogens

Koenraad Van Hoorde describes how next-generation sequencing is being utilized in food safety and testing systems in this exclusive interview filmed at Asset 2018. He is currently using NGS to detect pathogens along the food chain from farm to fork, and is particularly interested in the pathogens found in dairy products. In this video, discover how Van Hoorde is researching cronobacter, which has been found in baby foods of a dairy origin, including infant formula.
