Title Project wrap up for "Rapid detection and identification of highly pathogenic viruses"
Abstract The three year collaborative research project "Rapid detection and identification of highly pathogenic viruses" or PanViruShield project ended in mid 2011. The aim of the project was to develop a rapid diagnostic system for viral pathogens, suitable as a first screening and diagnostic method during infectious disease emergencies and suspected bioterrorist attacks or as a standard diagnostic tool. The system was to be based on transmission electron microscopy and automated image analysis. In this seminar I will present the image analysis methods and results generated within the project but also talk about what experiences I gained from participating in the project.
