Add to my calendar 10/02/2021 3:09 pm Australia/Melbourne AusTrakka: integrated pathogen genomics for SARS-CoV-2 Online DD/MM/YYYY

10 Feb 2021
1.00 - 2.00pm


Join the Doherty Institute's Dr Clare Sloggett for thiis webinar on Austrakka, a platform to enable genomic surveillance of pathogen outbreaks at the national level. 

AusTrakka enables inter-jurisdictional sharing and analysis of genomic data, which is critical for the tracking of pathogen outbreaks across state boundaries. In 2020, AusTrakka development was accelerated and refocused in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and AusTrakka was endorsed as the national SARS-Cov-2 data sharing platform. AusTrakka now hosts data for over 18,000 SARS-Cov-2 samples from all Australian states and territories, as well as New Zealand. Clare will discuss the efforts involved in setting up and developing a national genomics platform like AusTrakka, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Registration essential.
