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. Bioremediation of quinclorac injury on tobacco by a rhizosphere bacterium

    • Sat, 07/02/2022 - 04:00
    • World Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology
    • The presence of herbicides residues in soil represents a serious problem for agriculture. Quinclorac is a common herbicide applied in rice field, but its residue can cause abnormal growth in successive crop of tobacco in Southern China. Remediation by microorganisms is considered to be an environmentally friendly method to remove such pollutants injury. The aims of this study were to obtain quinclorac remediation isolates and to investigate the possible mechanism(s) of remediation.

  2. Comprehensive characterization of stress tolerant bacteria with plant growth-promoting potential isolated from glyphosate-treated environment

    • Sat, 05/08/2021 - 02:02
    • World Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology
    • The application of plant growth-promoting bacteria in agricultural systems is an efficient and environment-friendly strategy to improve crop yields and maintain soil quality. However, as different soils have diverse and specific ecological characteristics and may represent adverse abiotic conditions, in vivo application requires the careful selection of the desired beneficial microorganisms.

  4. Impact of pesticides in properties of Bradyrhizobium spp. and in the symbiotic performance with soybean

    • Sun, 10/18/2020 - 02:03
    • World Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology
    • Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] has great economic and nutritional importance mainly due to its high protein content. All plant's N needs can be met by the symbiosis with elite Bradyrhizobium strains applied as inoculants to the seeds at sowing time; however, the increasing use of pesticides in seed treatments can impair the contribution of the biological nitrogen fixation. In this study, we report decreases in cell survival of two strains, B.

  5. Isolation and molecular identification of Aspergillus flavus and the study of its potential for malathion biodegradation in water

    • Thu, 06/18/2020 - 02:02
    • World Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology
    • In spite of the fact that pesticides enhanced the quality and yield of the agricultural production however do have certain serious effects on the environment. This study was carried out for isolation and molecular identification of microorganisms from water for malathion biodegradation in aquatic system. PCR analysis was used for identification of the isolated fungus. The growth kinetics of A.
