Campden BRI to host DNA seminar

DNA-imageDuring the last ten years, notes Campden BRI, sequencing of DNA has become cheaper and more productive than anyone could have imagined previously. Now microbiologists use powerful sequencing methods to study the genomes of individual microorganisms and microbial communities.

Currently, the company says, the food industry is not routinely using sequencing for these analyses, despite its adoption by government agencies and healthcare practitioners. A Campden BRI seminar, to be held on 20th May, will highlight the areas in which sequencing technology is most likely to make an impact. It will cover:

  • The past, present and future of genomics in food microbiology
  • What genome microbiology consists of
  • How bioinformatics are applied in food safety applications
  • How company laboratories can embrace genome microbiology for the benefit of the business
  • How food poisoning outbreaks have been traced through next generation sequencing
  • Update on the USA position

Campden BRI is the UK’s largest independent membership-based organisation carrying out research and development for the food and drinks industry worldwide. It is committed to providing industry with the research, technical and advisory services needed to ensure product safety and quality, process efficiency and product and process innovation. Campden BRI has over 2400 member companies in 75 different countries.
