The Food Microbial Bioinformatician responds to the challenge raised by the advent of Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS), which is revolutionising research on Food Safety and Public Health protection. WGS is gradually substituting traditional genotyping used in surveillance, outbreak investigation and microbial risk assessment. However, the missing of specific, transversal and multidisciplinary university programs merging classical Food Microbiology education with advance training in Statistics, Epidemiology and Computer Science is hampering the establishment of a professional profile able to meet the challenges of new “Omics Era” in Food Microbiology.
LEGO’s IO1 fills the existing gap by detailing the minimum requirements and characteristics such a research and professional hybrid figure should satisfy.

A new Professional/Research
Profile: the “Food Microbial
The proposed eLearning pathways integrate and harmonise beneficiaries’ competences in Molecular Epidemiology, Bioinformatics, and application of WGS for enhancing Food Safety.
Being flexible, eLearning encourages its beneficiaries to fill their learning gaps, tailoring the learning experience offered by the LEGO project for attaining the certificate of competence as Food Microbial Bioinformatician.
The ”Open Badge” system is adopted to certify the knowledge and skills acquired at the end of the eLearning experience.
The course is available at https://elearning.izs.it.
E-learning pathways for
Food Microbial Bioinformaticians
The LEGO PLATFORM is a multifunction and multi-tool system combining various information and resources (both internal and external) into a single user interface.
It will facilitate and support:
- The new profile self-assessment process
- E-Learning paths delivery
- The new profile certification
- Knowledge sharing between HEIs, VET providers, research centres and business operators
- Employability and mobility
