Leading Food Safety’s Technology-Driven Future

When the first bacterial genome was sequenced in 1995, it was impossible to imagine the new ways that humans would put microbes to work in service of food safety and security. But today, big data can be paired with microbial sequencing to monitor the microbial ecosystem of food and detect potential threats, transforming the field […]

Cornell, IBM Research collaborate to safeguard milk and — in the process — the world’s global food supply

Milk. You probably have it in your fridge, but might not realize that the study of this single beverage can produce insights that could reduce foodborne illness and waste across the entire food system. Next-generation sequencing and big data analytics will identify new ways to eliminate hazards in the food supply chain — using milk […]
