Front Line Genomics invites you to their event

Microbiome sequencing ONLINE - Webinar 1: Understanding the role of microbiome perturbations.

About this event

Research has shown that often the microbiome is perturbed in human disease states. Advances in sequencing technologies have enabled researchers to gain a deep molecular understanding of changes in both host and microbial cells, and we are beginning to piece together the complex relationship we have with our microbiomes.

Join us for Microbiome Sequencing ONLINE, as we showcase research that is uncovering the role the microbiome plays in disease and therapeutic opportunities.

Webinar 1: Understanding the role of microbiome perturbations.

Wednesday 8th September at 3pm BST/ 4pm CEST/ 10am EDT

With changes to the microbiome being associated with different diseases and states, understanding the relationship between the microbiome in health and disease remains a challenge. Luckily, many technologies remain in the toolbox to understand this complex relationship.

This webinar will focus on found associations between microbiome perturbations and complex phenotypes and describe how these studies are improving our understanding of these relationships.

In Vitro Models of the Human Small Intestinal & Colonic Microbiota: Compositional and Functional Analysis – Elliot Friedman, Director of Data Integration, Penn Center for Nutritional Science & Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

Charting the unknown universe of the human gut microbiome and its relevance to health and disease– Alexandre Almeida, ESPOD fellow, EMBL-EBI

Webinar 2: Host-microbiome interactions

Wednesday 15th September at 3pm BST/ 4pm CEST/ 10am EDT

As we continue to find microbiome perturbations in various disease states, our understanding of the complex relationship between the host-microbiome is being fuelled by host-microbiome research.

This webinar will showcase recent studies of host-microbe interactions, including highlighting the opportunities of multi-omics sequencing technologies and study design.

Ontology-based host-microbiome interaction knowledge and data standardization, integration, and analysis – Yonggun (Oliver) He, Associate Professor, University of Michigan Medical School

Confounding for technical biases and how fasting alters the microbiome and sustained Blood Pressure and Body Weight Reduction in Patients with Metabolic Syndrome - Theda Bartolomaeus, PhD Student, Forslund Lab, MDC Berlin

Webinar 3: The microbiome and intestinal health

Wednesday 22nd September at 3pm BST/ 4pm CEST/ 10am EDT

Sponsored by Novogene

Changes in the intestinal microbiome is associated with a variety of intestinal health issues. This webinar will focus on research that defines healthy and unhealthy microbiome states and what this means for future therapeutics.

Shared and disease-specific host gene-microbiome interactions across human diseases – Sambhawa Priya, PhD Student, Blekhman lab, University of Minnesota.

The microbiome of inflammatory bowel disease – Marcus Claesson, Lecturer, University College Cork
