Microbiome Sequencing Workshop

January 9, 2020

Event Navigation

Half day workshop exploring the applications of microbiome research and currently used techniques and tools. Attendees will learn how to sequencing the microbiome and how to apply that data to determine the connection between gene expression and metabolic signatures.
