Application of Genomic Tools to the Detection and Surveillance of Listeria monocytogenes


  • Application of Genomic Tools to the Detection and Surveillance of Listeria monocytogenes

    Code : GC
    Organisator : Génome Canada (GC )
    Year : 2012


    Genome Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Alberta Innovates – BioSolutions (AI-Bio), is seeking proposals focused on the application of the latest genomics technologies to the detection and surveillance of Listeria monocytogenes (Listeria).

     

    To define the parameters of the program, a one-day workshop was held on February 28, 2012 bringing together leaders from the fields of pathogen detection and characterization, genomics technologies, and the food processing industry. The recommendations from that meeting have been incorporated into this RFA.
