Gain a better understanding of the importance and challenges associated with controlling certain viruses (e.g., norovirus and hepatitis A virus), bacteria (e.g., spore-formers and Listeria monocytogenes) and parasitic protozoa (e.g., Toxoplasma gondii, Cyclospora cayetanensis) that are otherwise recalcitrant to many methods commonly used by the food industry, and conditions (e.g., biofilms, internalization) that promote persistence and resistance.
