Webinars On Demand

WEBINAR: The Commercial Considerations of Microbiome-Based Therapeutics

The advent of microbiome-based therapeutics will offer physicians and their patients novel treatment options. They will be very different in  their composition when compared to current therapies that are all based  on small and large molecules.

This webinar explores what the regulatory considerations might be, customer expectations, messaging implications, and other factors involved in launching these therapeutics.

JP also explores the key issues that commercial teams (marketing, market  research, sales, managed care, etc.) will need to address to ensure that the therapeutic promise of these agents translates into commercial success?

Presented by JP Benya, Vice President, Commercial at Assembly Biosciences

WEBINAR: Solving the Metagenome Assembly Problem with Hi-C

Chromosome Conformation Capture tools like Hi-C directly indicate which  DNA sequences originated from the same cells in a mixed population. This enables the assembly of numerous high-quality de novo genomes (with  plasmids) without culturing from a single microbiome sample.

Phase Genomics has developed a rapid, kit-based platform that  greatly improves microbiome research efforts and shortens the path to  microbial discovery. This webinar explores; How Hi-C works; How Hi-C data can be used to deconvolve metagenomes; What kinds of information you can glean from this data (case studies), and how this technology can be applied to your favorite samples.

Presented by Ivan Liachko, Co-founder & CEO at Phase Genomics
