Well deserved distinction!
Congratulations to Dr. Xiangyu Deng, assistant professor of food microbiology, for the award of a 2017 UGA Creative Research Medal. The medals are awarded for outstanding research or creative activity within the past five years that focuses on a single theme identified with the University of Georgia. Dr. Deng is recognized for creating a bioinformatics tool that is helping transform global laboratory surveillance of salmonella, the most prevalent bacterial foodborne pathogen in the U.S. and worldwide.
His creation, SeqSero, is a powerful web-based tool that offers a novel and rapid approach to serotyping salmonella strains obtained from infected humans, animals, foods and the environment during epidemiological investigations.
