An integrated system to enable sequencing from pathogens directly from a blood sample without the need for blood culture
In the framework of the European collaborative project ND4ID (New diagnostics for Infectious Diseases), Biocartis and UA will perform joint research to develop an integrated system to enable sequencing from pathogens directly from a blood sample without the need for blood culture. An integrated sample enrichment technology, earlier developed for PCR analysis, will be extended to enable sequencing based detection, including both targeted re-sequencing and metagenomic approaches to enable species and/or antibiotic resistance identification.
My scientific interests include medicine, clinical and molecular biology, molecular diagnostics, Next-Generation Sequencing and bioinformatics.
