Countries with scarce laboratory resources could identify emerging pathogens by applying genomic sequencing of microbes to blood samples from patients. The approach, described on February 28 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, could provide more detail on pathogen dynamics than diagnostics such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
