A new online resource, called the Biosurveillance Gateway, is in place at Los Alamos National Laboratory, providing a centralized portal for all news, information, resources and research related to biosurveillance at the laboratory
“The goal of the site is to support global disease surveillance, providing useful tools developed at Los Alamos for professionals around the world to reference from a single location,” said Alina Deshpande, the project’s leader.
Biosurveillance, an emerging field of importance for national security, is the process of gathering, integrating, interpreting and communicating essential information that might be related to disease activity and threats to human, animal or plant health.
The site offers a variety of Los Alamos-developed biosurveillance tools that can be used for decision support in disease surveillance. Examples of tools include sequence databases for HIV and viral hemorrhagic fevers such as Ebola, apps for contextualizing disease outbreaks based upon historical data, as well as advanced bioinformatics software packages. Continuing updates and expansions will occur over time, offering more tools and information for the technical audience, Deshpande said.
“The projected audience would be health professionals in the US and worldwide who need rapid reference materials immediately at hand,” said Deshpande, “so they can understand potential outbreaks and take related actions to help improve response times.”
