The recording for  Whole Genome Sequencing in the Industry – Metagenomics and Beyond by Dr. Pablo Carrion

This series contained five different webinar topics surrounding Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) which occurred once a month from January to May of 2020. WGS is an increasingly valuable tool with a broad scope of applications from food safety management and surveillance to outbreak investigations. The series started by exploring the basics of Whole Genome Sequencing and how this tool applies to food safety management. In later months, the topic evolved into sequencing protocols, case studies, regulatory applications and novel applications of the next generation of whole genome sequencing such as metagenomics.
