LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, February 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- GIDEON Informatics partnered with Jisc, the UK’s digital body for education and research, for an exciting one-year pilot agreement. Jisc members get an exclusive discount to access the popular GIDEON comprehensive infectious diseases database as part of the subscription offer.

Subscribers can leverage GIDEON’s web application and API (with a free R statistical package) to enhance their training, education, diagnostics, and research efforts. Any members of staff in higher education (HE) and further education (FE) institutions interested in learning more are invited to join a free online discussion on Tuesday, March 1, 2022

The GIDEON database is a powerhouse of information on:

Now, UK academics and educators get in-depth epidemiology data at the click of a button.” She added, “In the past few years, UK’s academic bodies have had to adopt fully-online or hybrid learning models rapidly. Educators and students urgently need advanced digital resources to learn about, and fight against, infectious disease outbreaks.”

Regarding the new alliance, Caren Milloy, Jisc’s director of licensing, said: “The GIDEON partnership is another significant agreement that enables our members to access critical health information that supports education and research.”
