Investigating the Ocular Surface Microbiome: Best Practices for Low-Biomass Microbial Research

August 2, 2021

3:00 PM to 8:00 PM ET

This online scientific symposium’s goal is to facilitate discussion of technical issues associated with studying the microbiome in a low biomass niche, specifically the ocular surface.

The symposium will comprise 4 sessions with 3-4 presentations per session. Sessions will address specimen collection and processing, methods for characterizing the ocular surface microbiome, and best practices for generating reproducible data. Discussions will follow each session.

Registration is free and attendees are welcome to participate in the panel discussions.
