Webinar: The Long and Short of Long-Read Sequencing

February 9 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

"Next Generation Sequencing has been implemented and utilized for a variety of public health applications. Although most laboratories initially deployed short-read sequencing technology due to its broad usages across different pathogens, there were many challenges. Long read sequencing has a number of uses both as a stand-alone technology and as a complement to short-read sequencing. This webinar will provide an overview of the background of long-read sequencing and an in-depth look into its applications, specifically in public health laboratories. The audience will hear from Dr. Kelly Oakeson who will also explore the challenges and the current landscape of long-read sequencing, including how next generation sequencing has been utilized during the COVID-19 pandemic."

Webinar: Superbugs and Changing Drugs: Antimicrobial Resistance Mechanisms Webinar

March 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

"Antimicrobial resistant (AR) organisms are a global public health threat. In order to best characterize the infectious agent, determine effective treatment and develop new agents, it is critical to understand and survey the mechanisms by which these organisms gain resistance. During this webinar Lars Westblade will discuss major types of AR pathogens and their resistance mechanisms, laboratory detection of these pathogens and the use of antimicrobial susceptibility testing breakpoints for detecting resistance. Through a series of case studies, the audience will walk through the processes for AR detection, characterization and surveillance."
