Key Takeaways

  • Whole genome sequencing has evolved from a detection tool to a prediction and prevention method.
  • By moving testing and quality controls further back in the supply chain, we can prevent contamination by utilizing environmental modeling to identify specific pathogens and indicator organisms.
  • The food safety industry has evolved exponentially over the past 5 years, and an important next step will be implementing new tools in plant mitigation.
