ASM Conference on Rapid Applied Microbial Next-Generation Sequencing and Bioinformatic Pipelines Online

Next generation sequencing (NGS) of pathogens whole genomes is revolutionizing the science behind clinical diagnostics, epidemiology, and the entire field of microbiology. Never before have you, the scientist, had access to, and been able to analyze and compare thousands of complete genomic sequences of bacteria, parasites, and viruses.

Join us at the virtual 2020 ASM Conference on Next-Generation Sequencing, and get comprehensive guidance with up-to-date examples in the use of NGS technology for applied results in the traceability and clustering of microbial pathogens associated with food safety, clinical infection, environmental contamination, and other potential sources of disease outbreaks.
