The field of microbiology, the study of minute organisms such as bacteria, viruses, archaea, and eukaryotes, is yielding startling new findings about their effects on people and the environment. Keeping current with these advances while keeping up with a demanding workflow can be challenging.
BioConference Live Microbiology 2015, a two-day online event from September 2-3, will spotlight microbiology research including new concepts, tools, and techniques. Topics include biofilms, emerging infections, global regulatory pressure on product preservation, the microbiome, and next-generation sequencing applications for microbial ecology.
Interactive live-streaming video sessions include question-and-answer sessions, and participants can earn free CME and CE credits. Following the presentations, participants will have a chance to engage in live chat—one-on-one—with speakers and peers. Explore the virtual exhibit floor to find the newest products and services offered.
Presenters will include:
Jack A. Gilbert, BSc, PhD, environmental microbiologist, Department of Biosciences, Argonne National Laboratory; associate professor, Departments of Ecology & Evolution, University of Chicago; senior scientist, Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole. He is currently applying next-generation sequencing technologies to microbial metagenomics and metatranscriptomics to test fundamental hypotheses in microbial ecology.
Matthew Keyser, MS,senior manager, next-gen sequencing applications, DNASTAR, a global software company, who helps scientists address their sequence assembly and analysis challenges.
Tony Rook, MS, manager, Microbiology, The Sherwin-Williams Company, whose Microbiology Center of Excellence focuses on global preservation strategies, continuous improvement of industrial hygiene practices, and development of microbiological methods to support coating-technology applications.
Steven F. Schnittger, vice president, Global Microbiology and Fermentation, Estee Lauder Companies.
