Using genome sequencing & machine learning to modernize infectious disease diagnosis and treatment
Antibiotic resistance is creating a public health crisis. Patients with a severe infection can die within hours, but current diagnostics for antibiotic resistance take 2 days or longer. At DZD, we are developing a rapid, whole genome sequencing-based diagnostic that identifies the strain and antibiotic resistance profile of a bacterial infection within hours. Our machine learning algorithm Keynome™ uses MicrohmDB™, a proprietary microbial resistance database, to determine antibiotic resistance from genomic data. In a severe infection, faster treatment with the right antibiotic saves lives and reduces costs.
We are based at the Harvard Life Lab and Harvard iLab and we have a strong collaboration with the lab of Dr. Doug Kwon at the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard.
