Abstract

In the present work, we have developed a Biological Electronic Protocol System for Enteropathogens Characterization (BIOPEN) with a Web Application interface that allows users to query data for characterization and analysis of pathogens through an integrated management of accurate collection, storage and retrieval of data, which aids decisions in health actions to combat diseases caused by these microorganisms. The proposed tool is an electronic protocol that aims to facilitate data sharing in health care, using a structured database to store information concerning about clinical assays and molecular characterizations of pathogenic strains and clinical isolates. BIOPEN was developed using open source facilities and is freely distributed, allowing a particular laboratory create a customized, reliable, and low cost database. Thus, the principal contribution of this work is to provide a tool that store and integrate results of physiological, biochemical, and molecular clinical tests that can help researchers in taxonomic identification of clinical isolates and prospective epidemiological studies.
