"Given the abundant use of sequences in recent public health crises, it is important to examine how the geographical source of infectious disease outbreaks can be traced and investigated through phylodynamic analyses of genomes..."

New review article in The Lancet Microbe

Approaches and challenges to inferring the geographical source of infectious disease outbreaks using genomic data

#InfectiousDiseases #outbreak #genomics

Genomic data hold increasing potential in the elucidation of transmission dynamics and geographical sources of infectious disease outbreaks. Phylogeographic methods that use epidemiological and genomic data obtained from surveillance enable us to infer the history of spatial transmission that is naturally embedded in the topology of phylogenetic trees as a record of the dispersal of infectious agents between geographical locations. In this Review, we provide an overview of phylogeographic approaches widely used for reconstructing the geographical sources of outbreaks of interest. These approaches can be classified into ancestral trait or state reconstruction and structured population models, with structured population models including popular structured coalescent and birth-death models. We also describe the major challenges associated with sequencing technologies, surveillance strategies, data sharing, and analysis frameworks that became apparent during the generation of large-scale genomic data in recent years, extending beyond inference approaches. Finally, we highlight the role of genomic data in geographical source inference and clarify how this enhances understanding and molecular investigations of outbreak sources.

Noticed my old #introduction was a bit outdated, so here's a new one.

I'm a computer scientist, bioinformatician and sometimes applied mathematician, using and developing machine learning methods for biology and health care. I mostly work on genomics data, but also on small organic molecules and electronic health records.

ME/CFS is affecting every area of my life, including how much I work and go out of my home.

Any votes for favorite method for de novo transcript assembly? I don't need genome-wide. There's just one locus that was the target of Cas9 in an experiment we're helping analyze. Bulk transfection for knockout with no clone selection. Supposedly the western showed no protein. But the RNA-Seq shows absolutely no difference in transcript levels. Trying to figure out if the target triggered isoform switching rather than out of frame for all transcripts.

Harnessing genomics for antimicrobial resistance surveillance

#AMR #genomics #InfectiousDiseases #IDMastodon #WAAW

Executive Summary
Historically, surveillance of bacteria harbouring antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has relied on phenotypic analysis of isolates taken from infected individuals, which provides only a low-resolution view of the epidemiology behind an individual infection or wider outbreak. Recent years have seen increasing adoption of powerful new genomic technologies with the potential to revolutionise AMR surveillance by providing a high-resolution picture of the AMR profile of the bacteria causing infections and providing real-time actionable information for treating and preventing infection. However, many barriers remain to be overcome before genomic technologies can be globally adopted as a standard part of routine AMR surveillance. This Series details discussions and provides recommendations to help realise the massive potential benefits of genomics in surveillance of AMR.

Okay, simple finding. GitHub has pretty strict file size quotas: 100 MB. You can use Git LFS to go beyond that, but then you only have ~2GB of LFS storage across your whole `Pro` GitHub account. So my hope to use Github->Zenodo archiving for any file, is a bit premature for >100 MB files.

Redoing my #Introduction post as I've just moved over from Fediscience to this instance. 👋

Hi, I'm Callum. I am currently manager of a large insectary facility in the UK. I'm interested in #Mosquitoes #VectorControl #Genomics #Speciation and #Evolution.

Announcing #SIB Comparative genomics course, taught by Christophe Dessimoz, Natasha Glover, @rmwaterhouse and myself, 30 August - 01 September in Lausanne #UNIL
• Introduction to molecular evolution & phylogenetics
• Orthology-focused arthropod comparative genomics
• Duplication of genes and genomes, expression
with #SIB resources #OMA, #Orthodb #BUSCO and @bgeedb #ortholog #orthologs #paralog #duplication #MolecularEvolution #Genomics #bioinformatics #training @P_Palagi

Hey there!
I'm a French researcher in developmental biology, focusing on mammalian sex determination and gonadal development at the genetic level. I have a PhD in bioinformatics but I do wet and dry lab.
I am a free (as in freedom) and open source software advocate, formerly actively involved in FOSS groups.
I love dataviz, photography, classic rock music, and playing video games.
I moved from another Mastodon instance.

New #introduction since I'm parking over here at veganism dot social[1].

🎓 I'm a #PhD candidate in #HistSci and #STS (science & technology studies) at UW-Madison (that's the one in #Wisconsin, not Washington)

📚 I study how #data get used, shared, recombined, and abused in the sciences – current projects touch on #pollution regulation and social #genomics. I guess #opendata and #openscience are relevant tags here

✍️ I blog about some of the #books I'm #reading, each post ends with a #vegan recipe [2] :vegan:. Mostly these have been scholarly #history books, but I also read a lot of #SciFi / #SFF

📝 My day job/funding (proudly #union) is as an editorial assistant at Social Studies of Science[3]

[1] at least for the time being, as a #fedipact precautionary measure

Is your research described by one of these: #popgen, evol. #genomics/#epigenetics, #life-histories, #biotic interactions, eco-evolutionary dynamics, long-term #field studies, #anthropology?

Come and make us stronger! Full #professorship at Uni #Mainz. Lots of recent turnover has happened here with fantastic young faculty, we have a lot of exciting plans for the future!

One genome is not enough to represent all of human diversity. Today, we're revolutionizing the human genome reference with a draft of a more robust, diverse, and complete genome reference - just released by the UC Santa Cruz co-led Human Pangenome Consortium.

This will be a game-changing resource for genomics and health research.

The future of genomics and personalized medicine is happening right here at @UCSCgenomics.

"researchers should not use race as a proxy for describing human genetic variation. Race is a social concept, but it is often used in genomics and genetics research as a surrogate for describing human genetic differences, which is misleading, inaccurate, and harmful."
