Real-time infectious disease outbreak investigations with nanopore sequencing and BugSeq analysis

Infectious disease outbreaks continue to pose significant challenges to public health, and solutions are needed that enable real-time, comprehensive genomic characterisation of pathogens and antimicrobial resistance.

In this webinar, we heard from medical microbiologists sharing their experiences detecting and tracking bacterial outbreaks using real-time sequencing with Oxford Nanopore and analysis with BugSeq, as an end to end solution.
