This 2014 photograph, depicts the hand of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) computer technology specialist, as it held a square shaped, gene sequencing computer chip. This chip was designed to quicken the processes involved in the identification of viral DNA, speeding up this process to a period of a mere three hours, from what normally took months to accomplish. Known as advanced molecular detection, or AMD, this new technology will be able to assist not only in viral genetic mapping, but genetic decoding of pathogenic parasites, and bacteria as well.
