Nanopore Sequencing for Enhanced Microbial Genomics and AMR Surveillance

Date: Tuesday, May 7th, 2024

Time: 7:00 am – 7:30 am CT

Location: Room 102AB, Baird Center

This session will provide an overview of practical applications of nanopore sequencing for enhanced microbial genomics and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) surveillance. Learn how Oxford Nanopore technology facilitates complete, high-quality microbial genome and plasmid assemblies, enabling characterization of AMR genes, precise mapping of their locations, outbreak detection, and tracking of horizontal gene transfer events. Gain insights into how nanopore sequencing accelerates turnaround times and enhances our understanding of microbial pathogens to support public health initiatives.

Space is limited so be sure to register in advance.
