PulseNet International Vision for Using Whole Genome Sequencing
Using whole genome sequencing globally in all public health laboratories can save lives and money by improving response to foodborne illnesses and outbreaks. PulseNet International is working to achieve that vision. A recent article describes the importance of standardizing sequencing internationally to make it easier for public health officials to exchange and compare data. This will allow public health officials to monitor trends with more precision, and improve collaboration to stop international foodborne outbreaks. The article and a related webpage include considerations for international public health laboratories thinking about taking this step.
