National Project


BacGenTrack - An integrated system for Bacterial Genome Tracking using high throughput sequencing technology: from identification to visualization


Duration: from 2016 Dec 01 to 2019 Sep 30

Financed by: FCT

Prime Contractor: Instituto de Medicina Molecular (Other) - Lisboa, Portugal

High throughput sequencing (HTS) provides researchers the ultimate tool to analyze outbreaks and study bacterial determinants of virulence resistance. However data analysis is demanding in computational terms and expertise. We propose to implement a user-friendly web system and novel analysis algorithms needed to facilitate the analysis and provide the essential data sharing tools necessary for its effective use in the field of Molecular Epidemiology.

Partnerships:  IMM - Instituto Medicina Molecular (University) - Lisboa, Portugal
