Teaching modules

Develop graduate and undergraduate teaching modules to train students to use and develop computational and modelling tools for produce safety.

The goal is to develop teaching modules for graduate and undergraduate student to improve their understanding of (i) the produce supply chain from “farm-to-table” and (ii) application of modern computational tools, analytics, and modelling approaches to produce safety.

 

Undergraduate Lecture Series

 

Produce Safety Lecture 1

Lecture 1 covers the fundamentals of outbreak investigations. We introduce E. coli O157:H7 and Cyclospora cayetanensis, and the role they played in two foodborne illness outbreaks associated with leafy greens.

 

Produce Safety Lecture 2

In the second interactive lecture, we present two case studies of foodborne pathogen outbreaks associated with fresh produce, including Listeria monocytogenes and Hepatitis A.

 

Produce Safety Lecture 3

Lecture 3 focuses on key attributes for ensuring the safety of fresh produce. In this lecture, we discuss potential risk factors throughout the produce supply chain, and control strategies to mitigate these risks.
