Applications Biotechnologies in Food Processing and in Food Safety in Developing Countries

Authors(1) :-Sarvjeet Yadav

The identification of infectious agents requires high-end technologies which are not usually available in developing countries. Developing countries must, therefore, seek assistance from countries with higher caliber technologies in order to characterize the infectious agents, put in place surveillance and monitoring systems and develop strategies to contain the disease(s). Biotechnology can play a key role in facilitating the characterization of new emerging pathogens.
