2007). New breakthroughs in infectious disease informatics (IDI) are the result of cross-pollination between different disciplines that use technologies to gather and disseminate knowledge (Fig. 3). Microbial genome sequence analysis and metagenomics have contributed intriguing new data types and data sources to IDI. Bioinformatics has brought to the IDI a range of analytic tools, databases and data standards. Conventional health informatics and computer science has provided high performance solutions for the data storage, sharing, analysis and visualization as well as clinical terminology libraries, data standards, decision support and technology evaluation frameworks.

A quantitative variant of this approach is the calculation of the index of association (IAS) between MLST loci (Smith et al. 1993; Enright et al. 2001). In a clonal bacterial population, a single gene can serve as the evolutionary marker for the genome, so different genes in the genome are in linkage disequilibrium. It therefore follows that if two isolates from a clonal population differ at one gene, they would likely differ at other genes as well. Conversely, in a completely non-clonal population, different genes are in linkage equilibrium, and whether or not two isolates are different at one gene has no bearing on whether they differ at other genes as well.
