Title: "Taxonomic and functional profiling of microbiota in low-biomass clinical samples suggests novel diagnostic and prediction opportunities for uncommunicable diseases”
The COVID-19 pandemic has posed unprecedented challenges to public health, societies and economies around the world. Although the pandemic appears to be winding down, some believe that the SARS-CoV-2 will linger far into the future. To ensure our defense keep up with the still circulating virus and new variants, there is a tremendous need to acquire in-depth understanding of the variant biology and the mounting of immunity. Such knowledge will not be only to chart a route out of this COVID-19 pandemic, but hopefully to also future-proof the world against new SARS-CoV-2 variants and other coronaviruses.
This presentation will outline the expanding set of tools InvivoGen offers to foster research on SARS-COV-2 infection and immune responses, as well as platforms to assist drugs and vaccine development.
ALL ARE WELCOME
