Role of Clinicogenomics in Infectious Disease Diagnostics and Public Health Microbiology.
J Clin Microbiol 2016 Jul; 54(7):1686-93
Clinicogenomics is the exploitation of genome sequence data for diagnostic, therapeutic, and public health purposes. Central to this field is the high-throughput DNA sequencing of genomes and metagenomes. The role of clinicogenomics in infectious disease diagnostics and public health microbiology was the topic of discussion during a recent symposium (session 161) presented at the 115th general meeting of the American Society for Microbiology that was held in New Orleans, LA. What follows is a collection of the most salient and promising aspects from each presentation at the symposium. J Clin Microbiol 2016 Jul; 54(7):1686-93
