The Wang Lab of Molecular Food Safety

Research

Some of our recent research projects include:

  • Integration of molecular detection and strain subtyping methods for the establishment of farm-to-fork food safety systems.
  • Use of mathematical modelling for the prediction of foodborne pathogen prevalence in food supply chains.
  • Use of Syst-Omics approaches to study the evolving microbial communities that are important to food production and human health.
