Biosurveillance Tools and Applications

The Biosurveillance Gateway hosts a variety of tools built by researchers at Los Alamos.


As new tools and applications are developed, they can be accessed here.

brd Biosurveillance Resource Directory (BRD) is a tool to validate and confirm disease surveillance information. In prototype testing.
  Flu Forecasts are based on a model for probabilistic forecast of flu season. Percentage chance of flu peaking at a certain time is provided at national and regional level.
Genomic EDGE is a highly adaptable bioinformatics platform that allows laboratories to quickly analyze and interpret genomic sequence data. The bioinformatics platform allows users to address a wide range of use cases, including assay validation and the characterization of novel biological threats, clinical samples, and complex environmental samples.
  Genomic Origin Through Taxonomic Challenge (GOTCHA) is an application of a novel, gene-independent and signature-based metagenomic taxonomic profiling method with significantly smaller false discovery rates (FDR) that is also laptop deployable.
The Pathogen Databases suite comprises three databases that contain genomic sequence, drug resistance, and immunological data for Human Immunodeficiency Virus, Hemorrhagic Fever Viruses, and Hepatitis C Virus.
  The Quick Urban & Industrial Complex (QUIC) Dispersion Modeling System is a fast response urban dispersion model that runs on a laptop. 
Sequedex is a tool that classifies DNA sequences by analyzing collections of sequences in new ways up to ~250,000 times faster than BLAST.
swap Surveillance Window App (SWAP) is an application to provide context and a frame of reference for disease surveillance information. In prototype testing.
