Cabo San Lucas

10th Meeting on Global Microbial Identifier in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

The GMI10 meeting is a Technical Meeting on the impact of Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) on food safety management within a One Health Framework and is being organised by Inoqoutech and the GMI Steering Committee.

The meeting was held at the Sheraton Hotel, Cabo San Lucas, B.C.S.; Mexico, 15-17 May 2017.

This meeting was the first GMI meeting held in Latin America and was a great opportunity to expand GMI contacts into this region. The meeting represented the GMI drive towards a global debate about the future use of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in support of microbiology, synergy of food industry, public health, and the environment combined.

The meeting also reached out to scientists, regulators and relevant industries in developing countries, and raised awareness about the benefits of Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) in countries where public health and microbiological labs are developing rapidly.
