Human disease caused by Salmonella is a constant potential threat to our health.Salmonella is typically transferred to humans from animals through contaminated food, hence there is a serious need for developing and optimizing food production environments.I have a background in molecular microbiology and I am currently involved in two research areas.First, I do research in optimization of genotyping of Salmonella by using microarray technology.With this technology, we use glass plates on which up to thousands of DNA sequences, which all relate to different Salmonella genes, are printed. Depending on the type of a particular Salmonella strain, for example oneisolated from an outbreak, you can get different patterns from which you can easily identify the actual strain.In addition, I do research in a more biologically related field where I use meat models to characterize specific genes involved in attachment of Salmonella cells to surfaces of pork meat and thereby pose a potential risk for food contamination.The purpose of this research is to develop faster methods for typing Salmonella and to give a greater understanding of the food production environments that help to increase contamination caused by Salmonella.
