Bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasitic metazoans are ubiquitous in the environment and are part of all aspects of human life. This makes the detection and monitoring of microbes important to understand their biological functions. To get the most out of microbiome samples, their preparation and analysis requires optimal workflows and efficient sequencing technologies. This webinar series over five days helps you get to the bottom of your microbiome sample with insightful background knowledge and useful tips and tricks.

Day 4: Identifying microbial communities with whole genome metagenomics

Shedding light on microbial communities: Novel NGS solutions for taxonomic profiling

Some uncultured microbes influence our human bodies in still to us unknown ways. In this webinar, we will explore next generation sequencing and microbial profiling to infiltrate the metagenome and identify microbial communities in complex human samples.
