Webinar: Novel Approaches to ID Testing Using NGS-Based Metagenomics

March 21, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

“Metagenomics, the genomic analysis of a population of microbes, enables the profiling of microbial communities in the environment and the human body at unprecedented depth and breadth. Its application in the diagnosis of infectious disease is enabling the rapid and accurate detection of thousands of pathogens in patient samples without the need for clinicians to suspect the likely cause and order the right test. This lecture discusses approaches, promises, and challenges for the use of metagenomics-based testing in the diagnosis and management of infectious syndromes.”
