Internet of Life
Global pathogen surveillance system
Internet of Life is a global pathogen surveillance system for sharing genomic data.
The data is collected using a Q-POC molecular diagnostic device.
The data is used to monitor the spread of antimicrobial resistance, detect and contain a novel disease outbreak, and identify suitable targets for drug development.
