Microbial Genomics Webinar Series - Part 3

Identifying Key Players in Host-Microbiome Interactions with High Resolution 16S Sequencing

Date:

Thursday, August 19, 2021

Time:

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

Join us for this webinar, as well as 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:

  • Understand how highly accurate long-read sequencing of extended 16S amplicons enables identification of metagenome community members at higher taxonomic resolution than short read methods
  • Hear examples of how metagenome functions that impact human health can be driven by specific species or strains within a community
  • Learn how the gut microbiome can impact drug efficacy
