LabRoots and the Microbiology Planning Committee will bring the microbiology research community together at the 5th Annual Microbiology and Immunology Virtual Event. During the free, two-day event, participants will explore and discover new concepts, tools and techniques to apply to ongoing research and diagnostics.
Microbiology and Immunology cover an array of industries and disciplines, encompassing various research areas including pharmaceuticals, medicine, agriculture, and space. The development of new techniques and the ability to sequence organisms without the need to grow them in the laboratory has opened up a new world of microbial diversity and complexity we know little about.
