Food & Microorganisms @ Microbial Biotechnology 2018

Pathogenic micro-organisms cause food-borne infections or intoxication, and include bacteria, viruses, parasites and moulds. It is important to note that pathogenic bacteria and viruses usually do not cause food spoilage, their contamination cannot be seen nor tasted.
The main factors that contribute to occurrence of foodborne diseases are:
  1. The use of raw food and ingredients from unsafe sources
  2. Inadequate cooking or heat processing
  3. Improper cooling and storing, for example leaving cooked foods at room temperature for longer periods of time, or storing foods in large containers in the fridge
  4. Allowing several hours to pass between preparation and eating of food
  5. Inadequate reheating
  6. Improper hot holding, meaning below 65°C
  7. Food handling by infected persons or carriers of infection
  8. Cross contamination from raw to cooked food. For example by cutting vegetables for salad on a cutting board where you have cut raw meat before
  9. Inadequate cleaning of equipment and utensils

Scientific Session : Microbial Genetics @ Microbial Biotechnology 2018

Microbial Genetics can be defined as a subject which involves both microbiology and genetic engineering. It deals with the study of the mechanism of heritable information in bacteria their chromosomes, phages, plasmids etc. The techniques generally involved in microbial genetics are replica plating, conjugation, transformation, transduction, mutagenesis etc. Microbes are suited for studying genetics and made a huge contribution in the field of genetic engineering. Microbial genetics have various applications in the field of pharmaceutical, medical, food and agricultural industries.

  • Gene Expression
  • Plasmid Ecology
  • Genetic Engineering
  • Mutagenesis
  • Gene Transfer
  • Cell Biology
  • Antibiotic Resistance
  • Techniques and Technologies in Microbial Genetics

Microbial fermentation for dairy Products

Microbial fermentation has been used historically for the preservation of foods, the health benefits of which have since come to light. Early dairy fermentations depended on the spontaneous activity of the indigenous microbiota of the milk. Modern fermentations rely on defined starter cultures with desirable characteristics to ensure consistency and commercial viability. The selection of defined starters depends on specific phenotypes that benefit the product by guaranteeing shelf life and ensuring safety, texture, and flavour. Lactic acid bacteria can produce a number of bioactive metabolites during fermentation, such as bacteriocins, biogenic amines, exopolysaccharides, and proteolytically released peptides, among others. Prebiotics are added to food fermentations to improve the performance of probiotics. It has also been found that prebiotics fermented in the gut can have benefits that go beyond helping probiotic growth. Studies are now looking at how the fermentation of prebiotics such as fructo-oligosaccharides can help in the prevention of diseases such as osteoporosis, obesity, and colorectal cancer. The potential to prevent or even treat disease through the fermentation of food is a medically and commercially attractive goal and is showing increasing promise. However, the stringent regulation of probiotics is beginning to detrimentally affect the field and limit their application.

Do you know that Bacterial can growth in plumbing systems too???

Fresh tap water is teeming with harmless microbial life, and water that sits for a few days inside pipes can contain millions of bacteria. Although incidents of waterborne infections resulting from indoor plumbing are rare, the new model may help public health authorities assess drinking-water quality.
Bacteria that live in tap water exist in two communities -- those that float freely in the water and those that live in the films that line the sides of pipes, called biofilms. Biofilms are much like the films that we see growing on the glass in fish tanks, Liu said. The team believes that the bacteria they see in the post-stagnation samples came from interactions between the water and biofilms that exist inside the pipes closest to the taps.

Bacteria in tap water can multiply when a faucet isn't used for a few days, such as when a house is vacant over a week's vacation, a new study from University of Illinois engineers found. The study suggests a new method to show how microbial communities, including those responsible for illnesses like Legionnaires' disease, may assemble inside the plumbing systems of homes and public buildings.
