Virulence factors are molecules produced by pathogens that increase their effectiveness and help them to colonize and grow within a patient and circumvent and suppress the patient’s immune response. Knowledge about these virulence factors is essential for the development of biomarkers and vaccines.
BaseClear BiaNomics can identify and characterize the virulence genes that are present in a certain pathogen, by comparing its genome with the virulence genes that are described in a special, curated database.
Tom is responsible for all metagenomics and microbial profiling projects, which are based on our next generation sequencing technologies, and the development of related approaches.
