Biography Annette Fagerlund

I work at the Department of Food Safety and Quality, and my interests include molecular microbiology and bioinformatics, and the study of bacterial biofilms. Main research topics are foodborne pathogenic bacteria such as Listeria monocytogenes and Staphylococcus spp., and investigation into how these and other bacteria relevant in the food industry survive and adapt in food processing environments. I use modern DNA sequencing techniques (Illumina, Nanopore) to track the spread and contamination sources of bacteria in the food chain, and to characterize genetic traits such as pathogenic potential. We also use such technology to study microbial communities, for example to study dynamics and survival of pathogenic bacteria in biofilms. I have a degree in biochemistry from the University of Oslo (2003), and a PhD from the Norwegian Veterinary School (Bacillus cereus virulence factors, 2008).
