Title: Comprehensive Genomic Profiling becoming a new
Standard-of-Care in Oncology Description: The value
behind a comprehensive assessment of the genomic alterations in a
tumor has been consistently increasing with the availability of new
therapeutic agents and better predictability of response. The
regulatory and reimbursement for this type of assay evolved
drastically over the last years. We will discuss how this change in
environment provides strong value to adopt comprehensive genomic
profiling in today's oncology care.

Microbiome research is quickly becoming one of the most exciting
fields in the life sciences, driven by the power of next-generation
sequencing (NGS). One Codex is a leading platform for rapid, accurate
microbiome and metagenomics analysis and is used by researchers across
major academic, commercial, and clinical institutions. In this
webinar, we will walk through a gut microbiome experiment including
sample collection, sequencing, bioinformatics, and analysis.
On the bioinformatics side, we will show how you can easily analyze
NGS datasets with the One Codex database of >80,000 whole microbial
genomes. We will review several types of microbiome analyses from
taxonomic classification to building predictive machine learning
models. Finally, we will demonstrate how it can all be performed in a
scalable, repeatable fashion, ensuring that your microbiome research
is reproducible whether it involves 10 samples or 10,000.

With the dramatically increasing amount of sequence data generation
and the significant reduction of sequencing costs, rapid, easy, and
accurate data analytics becomes the critical bottleneck in adopting
next-generation sequencing (NGS) in the public health sector. To this
end, CosmosID has developed a cloud-based microbial genomics platform
featuring with world’s largest curated genome databases and scaling
computational power to keep pace with the ever-increasing amount of
data generation. The platform brings together the most comprehensive
and ultrafast “sequence to answer” workflow for easy, accurate, and
highly resolved profiling of cross-disciplinary microbiome data. In
this webinar, various aspects of the platform will be presented with
reference to recent studies on water and wastewater treatment, food
safety, molecular epidemiology, and multi-kingdom microbiome profiling
and characterization. Key technologies that will be showcased include
strain-level metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, metagenomic assembly,
and molecular sub-typing.

The latest sequencing technologies enable unprecedented throughput
and redefine limits for many labs. To adapt, these labs must redefine
how they work – by automating tasks to reduce touchpoints and by
simplifying workflows with integration and robust analysis tools. In
this webinar, we describe BaseSpace™ Sequence Hub and how the newest
features support high throughput, high-volume sequencing. We
demonstrate how customers can progress from flowcell loading to
variant analysis with zero touchpoints by using the Whole Genome
Sequencing or Edico Genome DRAGEN apps. Additionally, we describe how
the integration with BaseSpace™ Variant Interpreter enables users to
interpret and generate reports of identified variants.
