MicrobeTrace: A Data Visualization and Analysis Tool for Outbreak Investigations
Outbreak data can be hard to visualize without specialized programming skills or tools. MicrobeTrace, a free versatile data visualization and analysis tool, illustrates genetic and epidemiological links to identify connections among the data to help control outbreaks. Using this tool, data can be readily imported, integrated and visualized - no coding skills or special licenses required! MicrobeTrace is currently used to visualize contact tracing and sequence data by the CDC, state health departments and academic research groups in the US and internationally. This webinar will provide an overview of MicrobeTrace and how it can be used for an array of bacteria and viruses, including HIV, SARS-CoV-2, viral hepatitis and tuberculosis.
