Molecular ecology of Listeria spp., Salmonella, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and non-O157 Shiga toxin producing E. coli in Northern Colorado wilderness areas
Foodborne disease is a substantial concern in the United States and receives a great deal of attention from the government, industry, and the media. Government initiatives have alleviated some of the burden; however, without improved knowledge of the molecular epidemiology of the pathogens in a variety of environments, a comprehensive understanding of foodborne disease will remain out of reach. Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella, Escherichia coli O157:H7 and non-O157 Shiga toxin producing E. coli (STEC) play a prominent role in the incidence of bacterial foodborne illness in the United States. ...
