Why collecting genomes and metadata matter?

There is a huge gap in our understanding of the use of data analysis tools, and the potentially disruptive implication of analyzing large data sets to find trends that were previously unknown. Our society is in the middle of a data revolution, and the applications of data-driven solutions into the food safety sector is not a matter of if, but when. This presentation will highlight on the granular aspects of big data-driven improvements happening now, and how data-based disruptions are likely going to transform the food safety sector.
