Genomes at CDC: Man, Mouse, and Microbe—it’s a Genomic World

CDC-authored publications on genetics and genomics, 2012 (n=178) Human genome-61, Microbial genomes-111, Animal genomes-6

The proposed Advanced Molecular Detection initiative aims to help CDC apply molecular sequencing and bioinformatics techniques to solving outbreaks and controlling infectious diseases. This approach has been called “genomic epidemiology”—using pathogen genome sequences to detect emerging diseases, assess their potential virulence and resistance to antibiotics, and monitor their spread in populations. The focus is on Read More >
