Join the Department of Food Science and Nutrition for this FDSN Seminar Series event featuring Dr. Carmen Tartera, research microbiologist at the U.S Food and Drug Administration in the Center of Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. The event will take place on February 25 at 1 p.m.
Dr. Carmen Tartera is a research microbiologist at the U.S Food and Drug Administration in the Center of Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. She initially worked on virulence and environmental regulation of Shiga toxin in E. coli. Since 2015 she has been working on live microbial supplements, with a focus on the generation of analytical pipelines to determine label compliance and potential adulteration in these products using Next Generation Sequencing. In this talk, she will provide a better understanding of the contents of foods that contain live microbials, the accuracy of their label, and the ability to identify potential contaminants and low-level constituents using Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) analysis.
