Episode #1 – From Fruit Flies to Phages

This month in Food Micro Minutes, Emma Farquharson and Genevieve Sullivan discuss Salmonella response to high pressure processing, fruit flies as potential vectors of foodborne illness, the involvement of hly and prfA in Listeria biofilm formation and heat stability of Lactococcus lactis phage due to tape measure protein.
