Era7 bioinformatics company makes one of the first functional genome annotations of the Escherichia coli bacteria at the centre of the German outbreak.
After the publication by the Chinese genomics center BGI of a preliminary version of the DNA sequence of the E. coli bacteria, which has probably caused the European outbreak starting in Germany, Era7 achieves in less than 24 hours a first functional annotation based on the preliminary assembly by the English scientist Nick Loman.
 
This has been possible thanks to the "BG7", a method of bacterial genome annotation that the R &D department in Era7 has recently developed and continuous communication over the Internet within the scientific community through blogs, websites and Twitter. The functional annotation is the step that allows us to discern what genes and functions are responsible for its pathogenicity and virulence.
