SEMINAR ON MOLECULAR METHODS

It is becoming more and more common to use molecular methods (DNA methods) for the detection and characterisation of various agents, such as PCR, pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and whole-genome sequencing. What do these methods entail? What is detected by PCR and what is the reason for the focus on whole-genome sequencing? Are there any challenges with the application of this type of methodology? How are we going to use this methodology and technology in the future? The seminar will deal with the use of molecular methods from a practical point of view, focusing on foodborne bacteria in the context of both food control and research. The aim of the seminar is to discuss the background of the methodology (technology), practical uses and challenges, and future applications.

Date: 25 August 2016

Place: Stratos Culture and Event, Youngstorget 2a, Oslo

NRL Workshop

Aim of the workshop: To discuss the organisation of NRL, and the duties and requirements imposed by the current and the new Control Regulation 882 on NRL and food analyses.

Experiences from NRL - How fulfil the requirements and perform the tasks in an effective way? As the number of laboratories has decreased, and the scopes of the NRL are about to be widened, cooperation will be increasingly important. How can we facilitate Nordic cooperation and networking in these areas?

Date:  8 November 2016

Place:  Norwegian Veterinary Institute/ Norwegian Food Safety Authority, Oslo
