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 2: Antimicrobial resistance detection and surveillance

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) Summit: Identifying antimicrobial resistance from Sample to Insight

With increasing antimicrobial resistance emerging globally, we urgently need to improve the preparation of biological samples, such as stool and wastewater. In this summit, we will demonstrate characteristics and workflows of different sample types for optimal antimicrobial resistance detection.

About the speaker
Dominic O'Neil, Director, Microbiome Product Development
Dominic O’Neil has over 20 years of experience in the biotechnology industry, including three years at the Whitehead/MIT Center for Genome Research in Cambridge, MA, where he participated in the initial draft of the human genome. Dominic joined Digene (later part of QIAGEN) in 2004 to work on new technology R&D, focusing on sample preparation and diagnostic applications. In 2011, he joined the QIAGEN R&D group in Hilden to work on solutions for next-generation sequencing. Starting in 2015, he focused on microbiome extraction and associated workflows, and now leads the R&D group as Director for Microbiome Product Development.
Dylan Barbera, Global Product Manager, UNGS Genotyping
Dylan Barbera received his bachelor's in biochemistry and molecular biology with a minor in microbiology from Pennsylvania State University. He received his Master's of Science from Mount St. Mary's University in biotechnology and management. Dylan began his career in NGS in 2015 and joined QIAGEN in 2016 as a Quality Control Scientist. He currently serves as Global Product Manager for QIAGEN's microbiology and whole genome sequencing NGS product portfolio.
Daniel Hand, Ph.D., Senior Field Application Scientist
QIAGEN Digital Insights
Daniel joined QIAGEN Digital Insights in 2020 as a Senior Field Application Scientist based in the UK, covering primarily the Europe and Middle East regions. He obtained his Ph.D. in molecular microbiology at The University of Birmingham in 2011, studying the canine gut microbiome using metagenomics. He has since worked in the field of infectious disease, applying DNA sequencing technologies to clinical diagnostics, including developing NGS testing, before moving to QIAGEN where he has been supporting customers with their bioinformatics needs across research, industry and clinical fields.
