Microbial models have been increasingly used by professionals in the food industry, research institutes, and regulatory agencies for a wide range of purposes such as product and process development, shelf-life prediction, setting performance standards, evaluating regulatory compliance and microbial risk assessment. This workshop will introduce the principles of predictive microbiology and demonstrate how to develop models and the use of models for real-world applications. This workshop will also demonstrate how to use the USDA Integrate Pathogen Modeling Program (IPMP) for model development. The USDA IPMP is an easy-to-use, user-friendly software tool that allows anyone, without the knowledge of computer programming and statistics, to efficiently develop predictive models. Examples will be used to demonstrate the step-by-step procedure in model development. This workshop will also demonstrate a new one-step methodology for developing more accurate predictive models. In this workshop, audiences will learn the essence of predictive microbiology and the applications of an advanced data analysis tool for developing microbial models and become proficient in developing and using predictive models for their applications.
