About this entry

Diseases don’t respect geographic borders.


The global health community needs the ability to share information and quickly track outbreaks.
IDseq takes in molecular data from labs and clinics and quickly processes the results to provide actionable information on the state of pathogens in the given set of samples. This allows scientists to make data-driven decisions about everything from when to deploy antibiotics, where to prioritize immunization campaigns, and how to shape mosquito and other disease surveillance and control efforts.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

Since the IDSeq technology is having the biggest impact in 2nd and 3rd world countries who don't have good access to state-of-the-art sequencing technology, we wanted to virtually take viewers on a journey to one of the most remote locations where the tool is being used by scientists and doctors. Our hope was that in taking viewers to the front lines, they would beterr understand how the product works in the field and what the real value is, and also create awareness for other scientists and doctors around the world who may want to apply for access to the device and the software.

Results

Take a 360° Video Tour to see how a local researcher quickly detects the source of a meningitis outbreak in Dhaka, Bangladesh, using IDseq technology, a real-time pathogen detection and surveillance dashboard that helps prevent outbreaks around the world.

 

Link to VR and 360 video website (the 360 video can be viewed on YouTube or with Google Cardboard or any headset viewing device. There is also a flat version for regular 16x9 viewing, and a link to the Oculus VR version if you have an Oculus device.

 

Unfortunately, this work is even more relevant considering the global outbreak of Coronavirus COVID-2019. Researchers using the IDseq software were able to completely map the COVID genome in a matter of days instead of weeks, making it easier for doctors around the world to identify the virus in potentially infected individuals. The example showcased in this 360/VR video is meningitis, but the use cases range across the spectrum.
