Whole Genome Sequencing Live Learning Series

The Oregon Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence is hosting a Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) Live Learning Series (LLS), led by our New York CoE partners.

This web-video based course (using Zoom, webcam required!) provides hands-on training for epidemiologists using WGS during foodborne illness outbreak investigations. The LLS utilizes both case-based and real-world outbreak scenarios for discussion with peers and subject-matter experts in epidemiology and molecular science.

Please review this summary for more information on the course.

There will be a total of 5 sessions, which will take place from 1:00 – 2:00 pm ET on:

June 5 – Whole Genome Sequencing and PFGE
June 12 – Whole Genome Sequencing in Action
June 19 – Whole Genome Sequencing and Epidemiologic Investigations
June 26 – Resource Prioritization and Other Practical Considerations in WGS AGE
June 28 – WGS and the Relationship Between Regulatory Agencies, Public Health, and Industry
***Attendees are required to attend at least 4 of 5 sessions.

There are 15 slots left; however, you may attend together (on the same screen/web cam) with one other individual. Only 1 registration is required per-screen.
