Tools for Microbial Detection and Host Response Analysis

Mar 29, 2017 9:30 AM–10:30 AM
Duration: 1hrs
The research community has begun correlating the makeup of individual microbiomes with disorders and diseases such as autism, atherosclerosis, obesity and cancer. To accomplish this, researchers must first identify and characterize these microbial communities. This webinar will provide you with a complete overview of the microbiome, metagenomics and host-pathogen interactions. Experimental strategies to facilitate your microbiome research will be discussed. We will also present a variety of Sample to Insight workflows that integrate MO BIO’s nucleic acid isolation technology with QIAGEN’s microbial qPCR and NGS research tools.
