Webinar: Microbial Taxonomy Updates: What Are They and Why Should We Care?

January 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST

“Technologic advancements in fields such as molecular genetics and microbiome assessment have resulted in a veritable explosion of new microbial genus/species designations. Acknowledgment of designations involving clinically-significant bacterial species would benefit clinical microbiologists in the context of emerging pathogens, performance of accurate organism identification, and performance of appropriate antimicrobial susceptibility testing. This session attempts to crystallize the origin of taxonomy changes and the potential impact on routine clinical microbiology practice.

A certificate of participation will be granted to each participant based on 1.0 contact hours of instruction toward credit.”
