From sequencer to results: enabling routine genomics use for clinical and public health microbiology in Alberta

PROJECT LEAD(S)/CO-LEAD(S) Tarah Lynch (University of Calgary) & Matthew Croxen (Alberta Public Laboratories)
COMPETITION/ FUNDING OPPORTUNITY Genome Alberta - Enabling Bioinformatics Solutions (EBS)
PROJECT START DATE October 1, 2020
PROJECT END DATE March 31, 2022

The goal of this project is to generate a portable and flexible platform that generates results from routine bioinformatics workflows, and adds the output to an accessible, database which can be integrated with additional data as needed. This goal will be achieved by the following three objectives: (1) develop a flexible database architecture to manage HTS data and capture analytical output, (2) establish exemplar bioinformatics workflows to analyze pertinent organisms, and (3) generate a user-friendly interface to access the data. This platform will be compatible with Alberta Precision Laboratories (APL) server infrastructure and current APL database schemas.
