The epidemiology of pathogens in production chains and processing environments is explored here from perspectives of foodborne pathogen surveillance and outbreak investigation; subtyping foodborne pathogens; molecular methods, genomics, and other emerging approaches in the surveillance and study of foodborne pathogens; and tracing pathogens in particular food chains. Researchers along the borders of food and agriculture and microbiology and pathology discuss such topics as attributing the burden of foodborne disease to specific sources of infection, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and other commonly used molecular methods for subtyping foodborne bacteria, investigating foodborne pathogens using comparative genomics, and tracing pathogens in poultry and egg production and at the abattoir.
