Research Publications (Food Safety)

The Food Safety Publications tracks research that is published across national and international peer-reviewed journals. Recent articles are available ahead of print and searchable by Journal, Article Title, and Category. The research publications are tracked across six categories: Bacterial Pathogens, Chemical Contaminants, Natural Toxins, Parasites, Produce Safety, and Viruses. Articles produced by USDA Grant Funding Agencies and FDA Grant Funding Agencies are also tracked.

  1. Engineered nanomaterials in plant diseases: can we combat phytopathogens?

    • Wed, 01/12/2022 - 22:17
    • Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology
    • Abstract Engineered nanomaterials (ENM) have a high potential for use in several areas of agriculture including plant pathology. Nanoparticles (NPs) alone can be applied for disease management due to their antimicrobial properties. Moreover, nanobiosensors allow a rapid and sensitive diagnosis of pathogens because NPs can be conjugated with nucleic acids, proteins and other biomolecules.

  4. Nanomaterials: new weapons in a crusade against phytopathogens

    • Fri, 01/03/2020 - 03:48
    • Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology
    • Bacteria, fungi, viruses, and nematodes are the major causal agents of plant diseases. These phytopathogens are responsible for about 10–40% losses in productivity and quality of food crops and horticultural produce. Although eradication of pathogens is not possible, control of plant diseases has been an area of continuous improvement/research.

  5. The pathway of 2,2-dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate (DDVP) degradation by Trichoderma atroviride strain T23 and characterization of a paraoxonase-like enzyme

    • Tue, 10/15/2019 - 03:35
    • Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology
    • Dichlorvos (DDVP) is widely applied in the agricultural industry, and its residues are considered hazardous to the environment. Microbial bioremediation is an innovative technology with the potential to mitigate such pollution. Trichoderma atroviride strain T23, a filamentous fungus, is very efficient at degrading DDVP.
