The long-awaited EpiFlu™ v2.0 application, being developed by Scopeland GmbH since 2014 remains incomplete. However, participants in GISAID bioinformatics workshops (e.g. Chicago 2016 or Madagascar 2018) were able to get some hands-on experience with the latest, user-friendly analytical tools, provided by GISAID’s technical partners. These award-winning tools will eventually be integral to the new EpiFlu™ v2.0 application .
Given Scopeland's longstanding relationship as a key provider of software solutions to the Federal Office for Agriculture & Food (BLE), the technical host of the current EpiFlu™ database, GISAID remains confident and committed to assisting Scopeland in overcoming the final hurdles and delivering a robust functioning v2.0, fulfilling the promise of a much improved EpiFlu™ user experience.
