Abstract:

Elodie Ghedin is a scientist, innovator, and trendsetter in the field of genomics. Ghedin’s cutting-edge research has opened a world of opportunities for the detection, tracking, and monitoring of emerging infectious disease outbreaks in real time. In addition to her skills and talents, which enable her to be a true innovator in the field of genomics, she is also a committed mentor for the next generation of computational biologists. This chapter by Tamara Lewis Johnson covers this trailblazing scientist, her motivations and accomplishments, and how she has inspired those whose lives and trainings she has touched.
