Medical genomics in infectious disease and cancer

Interrogating genome data to identify biomarkers and create new diagnostic tools

In the global fight against antibiotic-resistant bacteria, otherwise known as superbugs, the development of a point-of-care diagnostic tests is considered crucial.

So important that a £10million prize, The Longitude Prize, has been set as a reward for its discovery. Similarly, the US Department of Human Health is sponsoring a $US20m Antimicrobial Resistance Diagnostic Challenge.

IMB's Coin Group use genomic and transcriptomic tools to uncover biomarkers for rapid characterisation of pathogenic bacterial infections.
