Ad-hoc-de-novo-detection of viral pathogens with adaptive diagnostics for the prevention of epidemics (DetectiVir) : Optimization of in-lab and in-silico methods for metagenomic virus detection
Deployment of a generic diagnostic workflow based on next-generation sequence information and new integrated bioinformatic database approaches for the direct detection of new viral pathogens. The joint project combines molecular nucleic acid-based virus discovery by metagenomic sequencing with ad hoc development of customized serological diagnostics. An integral part will be a new and innovative database application.
The project DetektiVir is a colloborative project within the framework “Civil Security” (www.sifo.de) funded by the BMBF.
