Everywhere You Look: Select Agent Pathogens

As part of its Select Agent Program, the USG regulates 80+ pathogens, nearly all of which are found in nature and cause disease outbreaks with some regularity. We mapped disease outbreaks caused by select agent pathogens worldwide in the 22-month period between January 1, 2009, and October 31, 2010. This interactive map allowed you to explore those outbreaks by country and by pathogen.
