Topic: Microbial Genomics

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.
