US Poultry and the US Poultry Foundation recently announced the completion of a funded research project at the University of Georgia in which researchers profiled Salmonella serotypes through broiler processing.

Principal Investigator Dr. Nikki Shariat, Department of Population Health, University of Georgia, and colleagues at the University of Georgia completed a research project with the goals of improving Salmonella surveillance by addressing limitations in conventional culture detection methods and to trace Salmonella serotype populations through a commercial processing plant.

Findings provided a potential alternative method for Salmonella culturing, which can reduce the time required for Salmonella isolation. CRISPR-SeroSeq was shown to offer a new framework for monitoring Salmonella populations during processing

The research was made possible in part by an endowing Foundation gift from Fieldale Farms and is part of the Association’s comprehensive research program encompassing all phases of poultry and egg production and processing.
