Re-evaluating the role of 16S sequencing in microbiome studies
16S is dead – long live 16S! Re-evaluating the role of 16S sequencing in microbiome studies.
As part of the Microbiome Special Interest Group’s (Microbiome SIG) webinar series, we will be hosting Jethro Johnson, Deputy Director of the Oxford Centre for Microbiome Studies (OCMS).
About the Oxford Centre for Microbiome Studies
Located within the Kennedy Institute, the Oxford Centre for Microbiome Studies (OCMS) seeks to accelerate research to unravel how microbes underpin health and disease, from ageing and mental health to inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis and cancer – providing a unified platform for both correlative and functional analyses of microbial communities.
About the Microbiome Special Interest Group
The aims of KTN’s Microbiome Special Interest Group (SIG) are to develop a proactive, self-sustaining microbiome community in the UK; to raise the visibility of the UK’s world leading microbiome science and enable translation of this science to the benefit of the academic institutions, start-ups, SMEs, larger established companies that operate here and to society at large. The scope of the SIG covers all microbiomes, especially those connected to human health & wellbeing, animal health & nutrition and agri-food.
