Dr Ahmed Abd El Wahed
Scientist at the institute of Animal Hygiene, University of Leipzig
The gold standard of molecular testing is real-time PCR, which has limited target capability.
Nanopore sequencing has paved the way for differentiation between closely-related microorganisms, identification of animal species, and detection of causative agents of an outbreak, as the technology enables onsite genome sequencing at point of need with high speed.
This talk will focus on the use of nanopore sequencing in field settings without the need for bioinformatics experience, including tricks to achieve a successful sequencing run at low cost.
Attending this webinar, you will learn:
- How to do nanopore sequencing with limited resources
- Does extraction matter?
- Which is best - MinION or Flongle?
- Is there a need for a bioinformatician to analyze the sequencing data?
- What are the applications of nanopore sequencing in molecular identification?
