Researchers Take Virus-Tracking Software Worldwide


This news release was issued by the Ohio Superconductor Center. It describes the expansion of virus-tracking software that was developed by researchers and engineers at the American Museum of Natural History, The Ohio State University, and the Ohio Superconductor Center.

A biomedical informatics researcher who tracks dangerous viruses as they spread around the globe has restructured his innovative tracking software to promote even wider use of the program around the world. Associate Professor Daniel Janies, an expert in computational genomics at the Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University (OSU), is working with software engineers at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) to expand the reach of SUPRAMAP (, a web-based application that synthesizes large, diverse datasets so that researchers can better understand the spread of infectious diseases across hosts and geography.
