Allows to share, communicate, and built collaboration around Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) analytical tools and data. Pathosphere.org allows to evaluate novel detection algorithms and other analytical tools. It allows users to communicate directly with the technical development team through forums and discussion boards. The tool permits to detect pathogens in complex sample backgrounds by offering features that allow to utilize, modify and create pipelines for a variety of NGS technologies.
