An Open-Source Community Resource for Creating, Collecting, Sharing and Applying Predictive Microbial Models (PMM-Lab)
Quantitative microbiological risk assessments (QMRA) in the farm-to-fork continuum heavily rely on mathematical models for growth, survival and inactivation of micro-organisms in different food matrices and processing conditions, collectively subsumed under the heading “predictive microbial models” (PMM). Unfortunately, the currently publicly available PMM are characterized by a great heterogeneity with respect to applicability, quality, validity, documentation, application limits and software requirements.
