United States Japan Natural Resources Protein Panel. Food and Agriculture Panel. p. 397-401 Technical Abstract: Listeria monocytogenes is a significant cause of food-borne illness worldwide. This paper details the efforts of the USDA-ARS Microbial Food Safety Research Unit (MFSRU) at ERRC to apply the tools of genomics and proteomics to identify phenotypes of interest, the techniques of PFGE and ribotyping to establish strain relatedness, and the application of physical, chemical, and biological methods to control this bacterium in foods.
