Genetic diversity drives molecular epidemiology and outbreak surveillance of infectious agents. Genetic data enable standardized and reproducible approaches to identify case relationships, transmission chains, and epidemics. Data collection and data mining on regional, national, and international levels create a powerful resource.
Over many years, SmartGene’s web-based technology has enabled public health surveillance programs. The modules are ideally suited to limited resource settings because they require no costly local infrastructure. SmartGene’s solutions are easily implemented and adopted by academic and public health institutions facilitating network collaborations for real-time, high-impact, epidemiological surveillance.
