Food Microbiology Division

Food Microbiology Division

Food microbiology division covers areas of food microbiology and biotechnology. Food microbiology focuses on the study of microbial ecology related to foods, the effect of environment on food safety, food spoilage and food manufacture, the physical, chemical and biological destruction of microorganisms in foods, control of safety and quality of food stuff, exploration of antimicrobial substances from biological sources and investigation of foodborne outbreaks. Food biotechnology focuses on the application of genetic engineering, fermentation, and cell culture on the production of food components. It also covers the separation technique of biotechnology products.
