Through next-generation sequencing, microbial genomic research is accelerating the pace of discovery–rapidly expanding our understanding of microbial function and interactions.
Metagenomic and microbiome studies provide researchers deep insight about the microbes that populate our surroundings, infrastructure, and built environments. In this webinar, Dr. Jack Gilbert will present initial findings from the Hospital Microbiome Project. The goal of this ongoing initiative is to characterize the taxonomic composition of surface, air, water and human-associated communities in a new hospital—starting from the introduction of patients to major surgical procedures. Please join us to see Dr. Gilbert present preliminary data and discuss what his team has discovered from this exciting endeavor.
