Research Publications (Food Safety)

This page tracks research articles published in national and international peer-reviewed journals. Recent articles are available ahead of print and searchable by Journal, Article Title, and Category. 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 (requires login) and FDA Grant Funding Agencies (requires login) are also tracked in Scopus.

    • Aims Saprotrophic soil fungi participate in biomass mineralization, inhibit pathogen development and promote plant growth. Pathogens accumulate in soil and decrease crop yields. The structure of fungal communities is determined mainly by the organic matter content and pH of soil.

  2. Regulative effect of imazethapyr on Arabidopsis thaliana growth and rhizosphere microbial community through multiple generations of culture

    • Plant and Soil
    • Imazethapyr (IM) is a chiral herbicide with two enantiomers, with a much stronger herbicidal effect of R-IM than S-IM. Pesticide residues are a common problem, and multi-generation cultivation method can reveal the consequences of long-term pesticide residues. Methods This study verified the effects of R-IM on the growth of Arabidopsis thaliana and rhizosphere microorganisms by treating A.
