NEW: Pre-Conference Applied Microbial Whole Genome Sequence Data Analysis Workshop, September 23, 2018. Register today – space is limited.

The ASM Conference on Rapid Applied Microbial Next-Generation Sequencing and Bioinformatic Pipelines will be held September 23–26, 2018 in the Washington DC area. 

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is revolutionizing the front lines of microbiology, with actionable data available faster than ever. Keep up with the rapidly changing landscape of sequencing approaches and bioinformatics tools for clinical and applied microbiology. ASM NGS offers an unparalleled opportunity to explore how others are using this technology for clinical diagnoses, drug resistance prediction, outbreak source tracking and more. This conference is a must for anyone working at the forefront of clinical microbiology, genomic epidemiology, food safety, or public health.
