Future Developments

MicrobeNet is continually updated with new information and tools. Upcoming expansions and improvements include:

  • A whole genome sequence identification module to identify pathogens from raw sequencing reads
  • A new “Epi Tools” module for users to identify trends in their submissions that could predict disease outbreaks earlier
  • MicrobeNet en español, with portions of the site translated to improve MicrobeNet navigation and accessibility for Spanish speakers
  • New pathogens, including more select agents
  • Access to MALDI-TOF pathogen databases from public health collaborators around the world
