At Illumina, our goal is to apply innovative technologies and revolutionary assays to the analysis of genetic variation and function, making studies possible that were not even imaginable just a few years ago. These studies will help make the realization of personalized medicine possible. With such rapid advances in technology taking place, it is mission critical to have solutions that are not only innovative, but flexible, scalable, and complete with industry-leading support and service. As...

Wellness and Diseases: Implications of Important Microbiota

submitted by: dougramsey
The microbiota in personalized preventative medicine: how do we get from here to there and what role does metagenomics play? Synopsis—In this session we will (i) identify major questions and hurdles we face in under standing the integration between the human microbiota and human biology (in health and disease) and (ii) determine how these major questions may be addressed and what tools/technologies are required to overcome cur rent obstacles. We will attempt to identify immediate and...

Single molecule analyses of DNA in environmental microbes

submitted by: dougramsey
Comprehensive characterization of genomic composition in environmental microbial samples has been challenging, because the majority of microorganisms are difficult to culture. Additional challenges include a high degree of genetic diversity between and within species, various level of relative abundance and ubiquitous presence of cell-free DNA. Single cells or single molecules genomic assays hold great promise for tackling these challenges. Recent progresses in the developments of these...
