Bioscience Lite - The Microbiome

Bioscience Lite - The Microbiome

How do we know what microbes are living in our gut? Metagenomics, the analysis of the sum of genetic material from a sample, has started to shed light on the huge diversity of micro-organisms that occupy environments such as the human body, soil and the world’s oceans.
Dr Rob Finn from EMBL-EBI will talk about discuss the diversity of the human microbiome and how bioinformatics tools can help us to identify what is living in our gut.

Bioscience LITE is a series of free twilight teacher training events hosted by the Wellcome Genome Campus and the Babraham Institute to explore some of the big topics in bioscience. These sessions will provide you with updates from scientists on contemporary bioscience, access to some of our scientific facilities and introduce you to resources that can be used in the classroom.

The themes for the remaining sessions in 2019 are still being finalised and booking will be via EventBrite, but please make a note of these dates in your calendar:

Wednesday 3rd July at the Babraham Institute
Wednesday 16th October at the Wellcome Genome Campus - Personalised Cancer Treatment
