Researchers to develop computational diagnostic methods for viral pathogens
The Virginia Bioinformatics Institute (VBI) at Virginia Tech and Orion Integrated Biosciences Inc. (OIB) today announced that they have signed an agreement to facilitate the development of new diagnostic methods for key viral pathogens. Under the terms of the agreement, information on encephalic and hemorrhagic viruses from VBI's PathPort project will be integrated into Orion's Integrated Computational Analysis System (ICAS), a high-performance, portable computational tool that allows users to store, retrieve, and exchange molecular and diagnostic data on viral pathogens.
