The objective of the «PathoSeq» project is to prepare Norwegian food industry for the challenges and possibilities of using modern DNA sequencing technologies for surveillance and control of foodborne pathogenic bacteria. The focus will be on Listeria monocytogenes, considered the largest food safety challenge in Norwegian food processing industry.
Our research is to give new knowledge that contributes to the production of safe and durable food of high quality by those working in both land-based and sea-based food production.
Romanian and Norwegian scientists join forces to develop new innovative food packaging biomaterials with antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.
The pathogen pilot plant is Europe's first high-security processing facility. Here, researchers study life-threatening bacteria like Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli (EHEC) in a realistic processing environment, to prevent serious food poisoning.
