I was wondering if anyone could help me regarding a microbiology assignment. I am confused and need some guidance as to what to do next. Details of the assignment below:
Q) Describe, how food poisoning bacteria are able to survive and proliferate in foods.
Taking in to account the following factors:
•The influential factors within foods which influence the growth and survival of microorganisms.
• Relate these factors to the growth of specific food borne bacterial pathogens
•Use information from journals (at least five references published within four years) to Effectively explain the relationship of environmental factors and the growth of specific Food borne bacterial pathogens.
Now I have been asked to reference my work using journals, so far I have identified 4 journals:
1) Letters in applied microbiology (2003)
2) Journal of applied microbiology (2005)
3) Applied and environmental microbiology (2006)
4) Microbiology (2007)
So far I have identified the influential factors which influence the growth and survival of microorganisms.
Any help will be appreciated on this topic, or if anyone is familiar with the journals I have mentioned. Thanks in advance to anyone who replies.
