Virus discovery and epidemic tracing from high throughput metagenomic sequencing

VIROGENESIS is a research project under the EC H2020 framework (2015-2018), that will develop bioinformatics software applications to fully exploit the potential of high-throughput Next-Generation-Sequencing (NGS) technologies in the field of virology. With the advent of NGS analysis pipelines becoming part of the routine repertoire of research, clinical and public health laboratories in the public sector and private industry, this project will improve viral pathogen discovery and detection, clinical diagnostics as well as disease control and prevention.

The consortium consists of computational biologists, statisticians, epidemiological modellers, clinical and molecular virologists, from Belgium, The Netherlands, France, the United Kingdom, the Republic of South Africa and the United States of America.
