Mid-term for Genome Detectives

May 07, 2014
Having reached mid-term of the PathoNGen-Trace project, all eight partners of the consortium took the chance to gather at the premises of the SME-partner GenoScreen in Lille for its 2014 Annual Meeting.

Half way to the detection of new applications of Next-Generation-Sequencing (NGS) for microbial disease surveillance and early warning systems, excellent progress as well as exciting new findings could be reported and more exciting outcomes are yet to come. Supported by its scientific advisors, Stephen H. Gillespie, Marc J. Struelens, Gary Van Domselaar and the associated partner Molecular Microbiology and Infection Unit of the University of Lisboa the PathoNGen-Trace partners profited from 2 fruitful meeting days which paved the way for further collaboration.
