Next generation sequencing (NGS) of pathogens whole genomes is revolutionizing the science behind clinical diagnostics, epidemiology, and the entire field of microbiology. Never before have you, the scientist, had access to, and been able to analyze and compare thousands of complete genomic sequences of bacteria, parasites and viruses. This vast amount of genomic data grants a better understanding of virulence traits, adaptability to food manufacturing environments, geographical traceability and transmission to humans, along with a host of other valuable information.

Get comprehensive guidance with up-to-date examples in the use of NGS technology for applied results in the traceability and clustering of microbial pathogens associated with food safety, clinical infection, environmental contamination, and other potential sources of disease outbreaks. At this conference, you will get the available resources and direction you need relating to laboratory, bioinformatics, and epidemiology.
