How to effectively use NGS in metagenomics and host-microbiome studies: Characterization of gene expression changes in host and microbiome interaction

The microbiome has the potential to shape health in both positive and negative ways.  One way to characterize these interactions is through changes in gene expression from the host and the meta-transcriptome from the microbiome.  Understanding changes from the baseline expression patterns during changes in diet, age, and health conditions can elucidate key ways that the host and microbiome shape each other.  In this webinar we will cover key techniques sample isolation and next-generation sequencing which can be used to characterize gene expression changes during experimental manipulation of the microbiome.
