JPIAMR Network for Synergism in Microbial Sequencing and Antimicrobial Resistance (Seq4AMR)
The potential utilization of next generation sequencing (NGS) in combatting AMR is being constantly refined, aided by the development of novel sequencing technologies, new protocols, algorithms and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) databanks. In this respect, the Seq4AMR network will generate new synergies, identify AMR NGS gaps and solutions in applications and quality standards, develop and promote new teaching materials and publish an international Strategic Roadmap on NGS and AMR. To achieve this goal, Seq4AMR partners include interdisciplinary, OneHealth, international experts in the fields of antimicrobial resistance, software development, (open access) bioinformatics platforms, the applications of microbial genomics, DNA sequencing technologies, and microbial DNA databanks. The consortium remains open to the inclusion of extra partners during the projects’ progress.
