About AMD Clips

Clips are selected from a variety of sources, including PubMed, journal tables of contents, and online media. Special emphasis is given to the use of next-generation genetic sequencing in infectious disease public health surveillance, investigation, and development of new diagnostics and interventions. The collection is not comprehensive but aims to capture highlights, while surveying a wide range of topics.


  • Brand indicates that at least one CDC-affiliated author.
  • Brand indicates that the article addresses aspects of implementation or evaluation in clinical or public health practice.
  • Health Department: identifies articles having authors affiliated with U.S. public health departments, either at the indicated state or its sub-jurisdictions (city, county); health departments in U.S. territories are labeled Other.
