Foodborne Diseases, Volume Fifteen, is the latest release in the Handbook of Bioengineering series. This volume covers the ever-changing complex issues that have emerged in the food industry over the past decade. This is a solid reference with broad coverage to provide a foundation for a practical understanding of diseases and related industrial applications. It will help researchers and scientists manage foodborne diseases and prevent and control outbreaks. The book provides information on the most common and classical foodborne diseases, their emergence and inquiries, along with the most investigated and successful strategies developed to combat these health-threatening conditions.

  • Identifies the advances in biotechnology, emerging technologies, food safety and quality control that impact foodborne diseases
  • Explores advances in vaccines to fight foodborne illness
  • Addresses Campylobacter, Listeria, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Vibrio and Helicobacter
  • Discusses biosensor based methods for determining foodborne pathogens
  • Includes molecular typing of major foodborne pathogens
