Advanced Molecular Detection (AMD) and Response to Infectious Disease Outbreaks

Advanced Molecular Detection (AMD) and Response to Infectious Disease Outbreaks

CDC is unlocking the promise of technology to protect every American from microbial threats.

Pathogen Genome Sequencing: Public Health Applications

CDC Advanced Molecular Detection Initiative: Imagine doing a 10,000-piece jigsaw puzzle in the time it takes to finish a 100-piece puzzle. Apply that to infectious disease control, and that’s AMD at work. Now imagine putting together that 10,000-piece puzzle when key pieces are missing, disease is spreading, and people are dying. AMD gives CDC scientists the “key pieces” they need to protect people from ever-changing infectious disease threats
