Flemish software is being used to help analyze bacterial pathogens in the United States

In order to quickly trace foodborne disease outbreaks, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta recently started to analyze complete bacterial genome sequences from human samples by using the software. “This technology is beginning to replace traditional routine analyses of bacterial pathogens. With this innovative software we can guarantee reliable results with a better performance compared to current standards,” says Koen Janssens, CEO of the Flemish Applied Maths, which developed the technology.
