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 1: Isolating RNA from microbial samples

Tips and tricks for the isolation and analysis of RNA from microbial samples

Tricky samples like stool and wastewater require an optimized workflow for efficient RNA extraction. This webinar highlights critical tips and tricks to stabilize and purify your sample RNA and tackle PCR inhibitors.
