The Straits Times: Scientists to develop global microorganism DNA database to tackle foodborne diseases

The Straits Times: Scientists to develop global microorganism DNA database to tackle foodborne diseases. “Just like the genetic databases used by police to nab offenders who leave their DNA at the crime scene, experts in foodborne disease are setting up a global data bank which will help them identify, track and treat outbreaks fast. The effort will see laboratories and clinics around the world sharing the DNA of various strains of diseases (including foodborne diseases), and promises to transform the way food poisoning cases are contained.”
