Dongyou Liu is currently a Scientist at the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia Quality Assurance Programs. Previously, he completed a veterinary science degree at the Hunan Agricultural University, China and a Ph.D. degree at the University of Melbourne, Australia, where he worked toward improved immunological diagnosis of human hydatid disease. During the past two decades, he has criss-crossed between research and clinical laboratories in Australia and the USA, with focuses on molecular characterization and virulence determination of microbial pathogens such as ovine footrot bacterium (Dichelobacter nodosus), dermatophyte fungi (Trichophyton, Microsporum ,and Epidermophyton), and listeriae (Listeria species). He is the senior author of over fifty original research and review articles in various international journals and the Editor of the recently released “Handbook of Listeria monocytogenes” (2008), “Handbook of Nucleic Acid Purification” (2009), “Molecular Detection of Foodborne Pathogens” (2009), “Molecular Detection of Human Viral Pathogens” (2010), “Molecular Detection of Human Bacterial Pathogens” (2011), and “Molecular Detection of Human Fungal Pathogens” (2011), as well as forthcoming “Molecular Detection of Human Parasitic Pathogens” (2012), all of which are published by CRC Press.
