Join us for a Special Symposium
ASM Microbe 2016 – BOSTON

Industrial Metagenomics – Large Scale Analysis for Food Safety

June 18th, 2016 6:45pm – 10:00 pm 
Boston Convention Center Grand Ballroom West

The program will highlight the microbial ecology of foods as they relate to food safety and microbial diversity in the micro biome. Speakers will discuss technical aspects of defining the microbiome using metRNAseq to determine microbe ID, function, and forensic assessment of hazards in the food supply.
