GCRF GlobalSeaweed* aims to address three key 'Development Challenges' directly linked to the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals and these include: Challenge #1: Secure and resilient food systems supported by sustainable aquaculture - develop innovative new detection methods for key yield-limiting seaweed diseases and pests on cultivation sites and in the wider environment and legislation/ biosecurity measures to prevent their introduction and spread: We will focus on identification of emergent diseases and pests and the development of early warning, risk-based detection protocols and robust national and international policies to ensure the security and resilience of this industry in developing countries.

PRESAGED has also shown to provide early warning on entirely novel pathogens (i.e., pathogens unavailable for algorithm training), suggesting that this approach will be robust in detecting emergent diseases, such as SARS/MERS or novel flu strains, well before new training data are available.
