Computational methods to identify, viruses, bacteria, host biomarkers
Near patient or field-forward devices that analyze nanopore sequence data must interpret huge vol-umes of data, match with databases of microbes and present results in an actionable fashion.
A major impediment to treatment of chronic wounds is a clear understanding of their etiology. Effectively targeted antimicrobial therapy, especially within 48 hours, can reduce risk of treatment failure, extended hospital stays, and mortality. Chronic wounds can have a complex microbiome not amenable to deciphering by culture methods in part because infectious agents in chronic wounds form biofilms. Janus-I Science technology is designed to identify a broad range of organisms and an enormous diversity of drug resistance mechanisms quickly and directly from patient specimens have enormous potential to advance the field of chronic wound treatment.
