Pagination or Media Count:
Non-traditional biological threat agents could potentially by-pass or defeat current detection technologies. The goal of this project is to assess the feasibility of using present sequencing Bioinformatics technology for the identification of genetically modified organisms, identify any shortcomings and provide the input data for the development of a strategy for the ultimate discovery pipeline necessary for new biological agents.
