Signature Science uses sequencing and bioinformatics workflows to study the detailed genome of pathogens, the function of the genome’s segments, and their interactions with hosts. We can detect a wider variety of pathogens and gain better understanding of pathogen characteristics such as virulence, stability and antimicrobial resistance. Signature Science is using synthetic biology techniques to establish a laboratory model of viral evolution for pandemic viruses to offer public health entities a tool to support the prediction of evolutionary pathways and phenotypes of viral threats.
