Lettuce, chicken, caramel apples, flour: what do they have in common? They are the subjects of food safety recalls because they were the cause of disease outbreaks including Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria. DNA technology, otherwise known as genomics, is a cutting edge science that reveals the genetic code of these disease-causing microorganisms. You will learn how we use the science of genomes to detect, solve, prevent outbreaks, and protect you from these deadly diseases.
