Summary In this work, the authors review genome sequencing initiatives, explaining how they continue to build our understanding of the ecology, adaptation, and evolution of individual pathogens. They explain how pathogen genomics has the potential to ensure the safety of global food and water supplies. This is recommended for microbiology and genomics researchers, public health officials, regulators, food scientists, and other professionals protecting food and water supplies from dangerous pathogens.
