With the dramatically increasing amount of sequence data generation
and the significant reduction of sequencing costs, rapid, easy, and
accurate data analytics becomes the critical bottleneck in adopting
next-generation sequencing (NGS) in the public health sector. To this
end, CosmosID has developed a cloud-based microbial genomics platform
featuring with world’s largest curated genome databases and scaling
computational power to keep pace with the ever-increasing amount of
data generation. The platform brings together the most comprehensive
and ultrafast “sequence to answer” workflow for easy, accurate, and
highly resolved profiling of cross-disciplinary microbiome data. In
this webinar, various aspects of the platform will be presented with
reference to recent studies on water and wastewater treatment, food
safety, molecular epidemiology, and multi-kingdom microbiome profiling
and characterization. Key technologies that will be showcased include
strain-level metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, metagenomic assembly,
and molecular sub-typing.

The latest sequencing technologies enable unprecedented throughput
and redefine limits for many labs. To adapt, these labs must redefine
how they work – by automating tasks to reduce touchpoints and by
simplifying workflows with integration and robust analysis tools. In
this webinar, we describe BaseSpace™ Sequence Hub and how the newest
features support high throughput, high-volume sequencing. We
demonstrate how customers can progress from flowcell loading to
variant analysis with zero touchpoints by using the Whole Genome
Sequencing or Edico Genome DRAGEN apps. Additionally, we describe how
the integration with BaseSpace™ Variant Interpreter enables users to
interpret and generate reports of identified variants.

Pharmacogenetic (PGx) testing enables researchers to understand a
person’s genetic propensity for a therapeutic response or an adverse
reaction to particular medications. Recently the NIH’s Precision
Medicine Initiative has begun a nationwide effort to individualize a
subject’s treatment program, while the FDA has already included PGx
information in over one hundred drug labels. Serious drug reaction
events are likely to become more prevalent as more drugs become
available and the number of pharmaceuticals each person is taking
increases. To understand the occurrence of these events, sequencing
genomic regions associated with metabolism of a wide-spectrum of drug
classes can help inform clinical researchers, and better characterize
the frequency of known and novel haplotypes within validated genes
involved in drug metabolism pathways.
presentation, we will describe a method and workflow for targeted
pharmacogenetic gene sequencing using Kailos’ TargetRichTM PGxComplete assay.
