Microbial genomics matters

We recently had a fantastic week in Boston, where top educational institutions meet innovative life sciences. The Boston Convention Center, located in the buzzing Seaport District, was host to the ASM Microbe 2016. 

The agenda was packed with symposia, workshops, and poster sessions, there were blue skies outside the convention center, and hundreds of conference attendees visited our booth to discuss microbiology from sample to insight. We were delighted to see strong interest in our bioinformatics solutions – particularly how CLC Genomics Workbench, our new Microbial Genomics Pro Suite, and Ingenuity Pathway Analysis help turn data into insights. 

This year we highlighted how our solutions are being used to investigate pathogen genomes and outbreaks, to profile microbiomes, and to study host response to infection. Our new pipeline for functional metagenomics drew significant interest, due in part to Dr. Rita R. Colwell’s fascinating presentation on the importance of rapid taxonomic and functional analysis of microbiome data in the case of enteric infections. You can watch the presentation below.
