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.
The main aim of the project is to turn ready-to-eat food products based on meat, fish and vegetables safer and more durable.
Food should be safe and of high quality. Our research helps to ensure food safety, optimum shelf life, proper packaging and reduced waste.
