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.
