MIT Technology Review: How Los Alamos Is Learning to Track Disease Outbreaks Around the World

MIT Technology Review: How Los Alamos Is Learning to Track Disease Outbreaks Around the World. “Epidemiologists have found to their cost that it is hard to track a disease if nobody agrees on how to describe its characteristics. Now that looks set to change thanks to the work of Ashlynn Daughton at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and few pals who have come up with a new method for describing disease that is designed to bring this disparate field together and gain international traction. Their new system of classification is called the Anthology of Biosurveillance Diseases, and they have set up an online database to support it.”
