Biosurveillance Adaptable Framework for Teaming, Exploration and Reuse (BioAFTER)

Timothy Dasey, Lars Fiedler


Next-generation software environments for biosurveillance will need to be adaptable over the years without high reengineering cost, and adaptable day-to-day to fit the unique needs of particular health events. BioAFTER is a software environment combining the ability to collaborate through sharing of data, analysis methods, and analysis results, the ability to search for data, methods and results fitting a user's interests, and the ability to create new analytics on the fly through a drag-and-drop interface that allows 'Apps' to be pieced together as needed. This talk will discuss the rationale for the BioAFTER features and provide a demonstration.
