Presentation of Eleven Rivers in the Global Microbial Identifier to the FDA and representatives from 27 countries.

For 10th occasion, the GMI working groups meet, which since 2011 have met periodically. This time the 10th GMI Technical Meeting was held in Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur; Is the first to be carried out in Latin America and was a great opportunity to expand GMI contacts in this region.

In the framework of this event, Mr. Georgius Gotsis Fontes – Chairman of Eleven Rivers presented the Eleven Rivers Program: A proposal from Mexico on Food Safety. In addition, Mr. Raymundo Elizalde – CEO of Eleven Rivers had an intervention with the presentation: “Evolution of the Market Requirements for Fresh Fruits and Vegetables – Sinaloa Case”.

The event counts with representatives of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) as well as representatives from 27 other countries.

The meeting represents the GMI unit into a global debate on the future use of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in support of Microbiology in cooperation of the food industry, public health, and combined environment.

The meeting is also an effort to reach out to scientists, regulators, and relevant industries in developing countries to raise awareness about the potential benefits of World Genome Sequencing (WGS) in countries where public health and microbiological laboratories are developing quickly.

In the framework of GMI meeting, the events “Technology of Complete Genome Sequencing and Fruit and Vegetable Food Safety: Pathogenic bacterial DNA testing and its significance” was held consecutively.
