Online - Food Safety Omics HACCP

Microorganisms are called “invisible majority” that run the biosphere and run the world. They are  on and in the depth of the seas, oceans, and earth. They are found in the hottest and the coldest places and can survive and reproduce in the harshest environments. They are about 3.5 billion years old with a very elaborate and complex communication system called quorum sensing and organizational capability such as biofilm formation to combat environmental stress such as our sanitizers. Just recently we recognized a new domain called Archaea, so now we talk about three domains: Bacteria, and  Archaea (both prokaryotes) and the rest of the living beings as Eukaryotes.


The vast majority of microorganisms can not be cultured (almost 99%)  in the lab using culture methods; they are known as “Microbial Dark Matter”. Omics are here to help. In the food industry, food safety hazards must be controlled and almost 88% of the recalls in the United states are due to Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella spp and undeclared allergens. The space age and travel to the moon necessitated a solid, scientifically- based food safety management system for space travelers. NASA and others started using a management system called Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP).

Today HACCP is recognized, accepted and used by governments, academia and food industry nationally and globally. On January 4, 2011, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) introduced seven foundational rules that essentially used the HACCP principles to  ensure safety of  food for humans, foods for animals, produce safety, safety of the imported food, food defense, and transportation.

Just imagine combining all we have learned from HACCP and FSMA and combining them with the greatest  revolution in biological, microbiological, and other biotechnological sciences and technologies ; it is known as the OMICS REVOLUTION. This course is the first of its kind ( in the world and is about the application of genomics, metagenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, microbiomics, allergenomics and other omics (multi-omics) in food safety.

The first half of the course is about explaining different omics and food safety, and the second half is how to write a HACCP Plan or Food Safety Plan using omics principles.
