Description

Tenders are invited to carry out a pilot project to design and develop a user-friendly platform for the rapid interrogation and archiving of genomic data from human pathogens commonly associated with food. Provisional pathogens of interest include Salmonella, Campylobacter, pathogenic E. coli and Norovirus. Discovery work will investigate the preferred pathogens of focus (1-2 pathogens). This pilot will build on 'dashboard' approaches (such as those developed for Covid-19 monitoring) to create powerful, but easily understood, interfaces that can be used by decision makers (e.g., food inspectors or healthcare professionals). A key element of the data system development will be allowing the seamless integration of sample data with other existing data sources (e.g., infection data, meteorological data) to create new knowledge.
