Microbes – rapid analysis of outbreaks

Conference by:

Genome group, NCBI

Abstract

Deadly microbes and viruses are primarily responsible for infectious disease in humans.  They kill millions of people and sometimes develop to worldwide pandemics  affecting all human population.
Advances in DNA sequencing technology have made it possible for scientists all over the world to sequence the genomes of human pathogens rapidly and efficiently. New approaches in bioinformatics enable rapid detection of evolutionary relationships of isolates, access to metadata for related isolates, and the capacity to identify genes that may influence pathogenicity and treatment. The theoretical framework can help to predict the emergence of new pathogen and design epidemic control strategies.
