Mayo Team Developing Sequencing Technique to ID Infections in Joint Replacements | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Researchers at the Mayo Clinic are turning to metagenomic sequencing to identify pathogens responsible for infections that occur in hip and knee replacements.

During a presentation at the Individualizing Medicine Conference hosted by the Mayo Clinic last month, and in a follow-up interview with GenomeWeb, Robin Patel, director of the infectious diseases research laboratory at the Mayo Clinic, described a metagenomic sequencing approach her lab is testing to identify potential infections in patients whose joint replacements fail.
