Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS)

Mérieux NutriSciences offers whole genome sequencing worldwide for bacterial identification and characterization.

Whole Genome Sequencing is the best-in-class genomic sequencing solution to investigate foodborne outbreaks. Also known as WGS, it is the process of determining the complete DNA sequence of an organism’s genome at a single time. Whole Genome Sequencing is a revolution for public health surveillance. The World Health Organization is encouraging all countries to use this high-throughput technology.

Bacterial whole genome sequencing helps food manufacturers understand the origin of punctual or recurring food contamination by pathogens and to prevent potential future outbreaks. It is a key to setting up an efficient Environmental Monitoring Program in food factories.
