Research Focus

The Nugen Research Group is working on the development of rapid diagnostic assays for food and water. We are targeting the on-site testing of food and water samples in order to improve food safety and animal health. Currently we are genetically engineering bacteriophages to both separate and detect bacteria from a complex sample.
