The journal Clinical Infectious Diseases has published a study on the etiology of diarrhea in children presenting to a pediatric emergency facility. Samples were tested for a number of bacterial and viral pathogens and compared to stools from healthy, age- and geographic-matched community controls.

Craic Computing was one of groups involved in the study and developed the data management tools that supported it.

The Journal of Infectious Diseases has published a study on risk factors for bacterial enteric infection in children that was performed in Washington State. Most studies prior to this have dealt with specific outbreaks of bacterias such as Salmonella or E.coli, but these represent only 10% of all such infections. This study sought to identify risk factors for the much larger set of sporadic infections. An editorial in the same issue of the journal discusses the significance of this study.

Craic Computing was one of groups involved in the study and developed the data management tools that supported it.

In: Working Papers for Synthetic Genomics: Risks and Benefits for Science and Society, pp. 1-16. Garfinkel MS, Endy D, Epstein GL, Friedman RM, editors. 2007.

A major study on Synthetic Genomics: Risks and Benefits for Science and Society was conducted in 2005 through 2007 by policy experts from the J. Craig Venter Institute, MIT and the CSIS, funded by the Sloan Foundation. Dr. Robert Jones contributed to that study and prepared a Background Paper on the use of Sequence Screening as a way to detect misuse of this technology.
