Genomics and Microbiome, Interconnections to Health and Obesity Studies

The Center for Research Informatics in conjunction with the Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics launched the Computational Life Sciences Seminar Series (CLSSS) in October 2017. 

Join the next CLSSS for a presentation of research currently underway in Jack Gilbert's laboratory looking at how genomics of the microbiome might be connected to health and obesity outcomes. Topics will include an introductory overview of bioinformatics and DNA sequencing, as well as amplicon and metagenomics sequencing for microbial communities.
