Implementation of genome-based analyses to "One Health" surveillance of enteric disease

 

Funding period: 2014-2019
Lead: Eduardo Taboada
Total GRDI funding: $375,000

This project applies genomic epidemiology approaches to food safety through: 1) analysis of attribution of the likely sources of exposure to foodborne illness; 2) assessment of the relative risk associated with different pathogen subtypes; and 3) analysis of their transmission dynamics along the food chain. The over-arching goal is to support public health decision-making and program development for improved public health interventions related to foodborne pathogens and antimicrobial resistance.
