The Pennsylvania GenomeTrakr Consortium Advances Understanding of Salmonella Transmission, Antibiotic Resistance, and Bugs in My Food

Join the Department of Food Science and Nutrition for this FDSN Seminar Series event featuring guest speaker Edward Dudley, director of the E.coli Reference Center and professor of food science at Penn State University. The virtual event will take place at 1 p.m. on November 11.

Advances in high throughput genome sequencing during the past two decades democratized this technology across the life sciences. This talk will communicate ways that Pennsylvania’s participation in an FDA program called GenomeTrakr is advancing the understanding of Salmonella populations in wild birds, shedding light on antimicrobial resistance in resource-limited regions, and promoting DEI in the food microbiology discipline.
