Microbial Genomics Webinar Series - Part 4


Revealing Mechanisms of Bacterial Virulence and Adaptation with PacBio SMRT Sequencing


Thursday, September 2, 2021


10:00 a.m. PDT
1:00 p.m. EDT
6:00 p.m. BST

Sign up to watch this webinar OnDemand, and revisit the other webinars in our Microbial Genomics Webinar Series listed below, to learn how scientists are using highly accurate long-read sequencing to make new discoveries about bacteria, viruses, and the complex systems they inhabit and influence.

Attendee Takeaways:

  • Learn the importance of both high accuracy and long read length for generating closed bacterial assemblies, as shown by example of Xanthomonas, a genus of Proteobacteria
  • Examples of how hard-to-assemble domains and plasmids impact important biological traits, including pathogen virulence and anti-microbial resistance
  • Understand the unique advantages of highly accurate long-read sequencing for outbreak tracking
