Medical Microbiologist - Amsterdam University Medical Centre
Matthijs Welkers is a clinical microbiologist with a specialty in clinical virology. He has a PhD in investigating viral evolution using next-generation sequencing approaches and is currently involved in the SARS-CoV-2 and monkeypox genomic surveillance via the ARGOS (Amsterdam Regional Genomic Epidemiology and Outbreak Surveillance) consortium.
Implementing Fast, Accessible Viral Surveillance With Nanopore Sequencing
In this webinar, you will hear from leaders in the field of microbiology and infectious disease research, who will share their experiences in developing and implementing fast and accessible pathogen surveillance protocols with nanopore sequencing. The protocols presented in this webinar can be leveraged for targeted whole genome sequencing of different viral pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2 and monkeypox virus, as well as more broadly for the genomic characterization of known and novel viruses in an untargeted manner.
