    time and How can advanced sequencing technologies best be utilized to address issues in biodiversity public health and biosurveillance Impacts The BioWeatherMap Initiative aims to become a platform to enable distributed environmental sensing capabilities with major impacts in Biodiversity Public Health and BioSurveillance BioDiversity Global biodiversity is dominated by microscopic organisms Until recently most knowledge about microbial life was generated from the tiny fraction of species able to grow in laboratory conditions Advances in sequencing technology now allow us to characterize the diversity of microbial life directly from the environment vastly increasing our ability to answer basic questions like What lives around us Public Health The SARS outbreak of 2003 which killed over 700 people coupled with heightened concerns about bioterrorism and the sudden appearance of pandemic disease have led public health organizations to reevaluate methods used to track report and monitor emerging disease threats High throughput low cost sequencing technologies will increasingly provide public health organizations the ability to rapidly probe the environment to identify allergens microbes and viruses Major global diseases that can be detected via direct sequencing include Cholera MDR Tuberculosis HIV AIDS Typhoid Yellow Fever Flu and Anthrax among others BioSurveillance A BioWeatherMap platform will enable
