SeafoodSource.com to host webinar on seafood species identification

Join SeafoodSource.com on Thursday, Oct. 27 at 2 p.m. EST as it hosts a 90-minute webinar exploring the future of DNA analysis and seafood.

 
PRLog - Oct. 21, 2011 - When it comes to seafood species identification, DNA analysis is at a crossroads. Companies up and down the seafood supply chain are increasingly looking to independent laboratories to test product using DNA analysis. Why? Species substitution, mislabeling and other forms of economic fraud remain prevalent in the global seafood trade, and companies are finally realizing the importance of ensuring that they’re getting what they’re paying for — not only for the sake of their bottom line but also for the sake of their reputation.

But the use of DNA analysis to verify seafood species doesn’t yet qualify as mainstream. Is it time that it did?

Join SeafoodSource.com on Thursday, Oct. 27 at 2 p.m. EST as it hosts a 90-minute webinar exploring the future of DNA analysis and seafood. The webinar will be moderated by SeafoodSource.com Editor Steven Hedlund and will feature three presenters, each of whom will talk about the latest advancement in DNA analysis of seafood. Their presentations will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

The presenters are:
Edward Diehl, ACGT Inc., Wheeling, Ill.
Will Gergits, Therion International, Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
LeeAnn Applewhite, Applied Food Technologies, Alachua, Fla.
