100K Genome Project






 


Genomic Pulse

  • The 100K Genome Project is  a five-year effort to sequence the genetic code of approximately 100,000 important foodborne pathogens and make this information available in a free, public database. The project  includes pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria, and E. coli. To find out more, please click here
