Electrical engineers have adapted a molecular electronic device called a single-molecule break junction to detect RNA from strains of E. coli known for causing illness.
Rice University scientist's study finds growth of genomic databases affects species accuracy.
Hospitals are beginning to turn to genetic sequencing services to identify pathogens. These DNA tests can deliver results much faster than traditional lab methods.
Scientists and engineers collaborated to develop a fully integrated, miniaturized semiconductor biochip with closed-tube detection chemistry to perform multiplexed nucleic acid amplification tests.
Whole genome sequencing was used to confirm that the bovine tuberculosis (TB) found in the Ottawa, MI infected animals was similar to that of an infected Indiana herd.
The method allows future scaling to millions of genomes.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) operates the GenomeTrakr project, a distributed network of state and federal public health labs sequencing microbial foodborne pathogens and uploading the data to a common real-time public database.
This document discusses data sources that may be available to augment a public health agency’s surveillance activities.
This document reports on the status of the 13 AFRO Emerging and Dangerous Pathogen Laboratory Network (AFR EDPLN) laboratories.
The World Health Organization (WHO) Emerging and Dangerous Pathogen Laboratory Network (EDPLN) seeks to provide a diagnostic service for pathogenic agents in Africa.
