Informatics Research Seminar: Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance-Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
March 21, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Speaker: Cristina Lanzas, PhD
Presented from UNC-C
Broadcast Link: Seminar
At Duke, all seminars live or broadcast will be held in Hock Auditorium from 4-5 pm.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a national public health concern. In this study we demonstrate a nationwide AMR surveillance network and utilize data inputs from multiple agencies (USDA, FDA, etc) and how to track AMR gene flow using a mathematical model.
