Digging Up The Dirt Using Rapid Genomic Discovery With Nanopore Sequencing
 

Who's speaking at this Webinar?

Devin Drown
Assistant Professor, Univeristy of Alaska Fairbanks, USA
 

Antibiotic resistance is a growing health crisis in the US accounting for over 20,000 deaths annually. Identifying specific antibiotic resistant microbes is essential for quick and appropriate treatment.
Environmental bacteria can act as a reservoir of resistance despite a lack of exposure. As the climate changes and permafrost thaws, antibiotic resistant microbes may multiply at an increased rate.

In this webinar, Devin Drown, assistant professor from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, will discuss how nanopore sequencing with the MinION and VolTRAX can uncover:
- The uncultured reservoir of antimicrobial resistance
- The link between below-ground microbial communities to above-ground plant health
- Assess changes in microbial communities in the Arctic and sub-Arctic.

Attendees can expect to:
- See an example of engaging undergraduate students in genomic research
- Learn how to apply nanopore sequencing to understand antimicrobial resistance
- Hear our first-hand experience using the VolTRAX V2
- Learn about the link between below-ground microbial communities to and above-ground plant health
