Science: Salmonella serotyping using next-generation sequencing

Recently, there has been a lot of attention around next-generation sequencing—whole genome sequencing (WGS) in particular—for outbreak investigations. Neogen has posted a few articles on our blog and foodsafetytech.com to help articulate the applications of whole genome sequencing.

While whole genome sequencing is being used as a replacement for pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), some companies […]

Whole genome sequencing provides insight on the future of food safety
