Will metagenomics change how we monitor foods and food production environments

Advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) have allowed significant breakthroughs in microbial ecology studies. This has led to the rapid expansion of research in the field and the establishment of “metagenomics”, often defined as the analysis of DNA from microbial communities in environmental samples without prior need for culturing.

With rapid progress, metagenomics, once the sole realm of research labs, will soon become practical for many food safety activities. These advancements will change how we monitor foods and food production environments, detect and investigate outbreaks, and will fundamentally change our understanding of foodborne disease. Current Next-Generation-Sequencing-based activities for CDC's food safety programs will be described in the coming Annual Rapid Detection for Food Safety symposium in June 2017, along with a discussion of exciting possible applications in the not-too-distant future.
