The Integrated Rapid Infectious Disease Analysis (IRIDA) project is a Canadian-led initiative to build an open source, end-to-end platform for public health genomics.



Public health, food safety, and clinical microbiology labs around the world are embracing whole genome sequencing and genomic epidemiological approaches to modernize their infectious disease research, surveillance, diagnostics, and outbreak investigation programs. This new technology requires powerful, yet easy-to-use, intuitive software in order to transition these new Big Data methods out of the lab and into the front lines of public health activity. IRIDA is designed to make infectious disease genomics accessible to epidemiologists, clinical microbiologists, and the broader research community.
