Industry News: Don Whitley Scientific announces expert webinar on the human microbiome

07 Jun 2021


Don Whitley Scientific has gathered together experts in the field of the human microbiome to provide a webinar that is free to attend. The event will take place on 16 June 2021 at 14:00 (BST) and is titled: Anaerobic culture of the normal human intestinal microbiota.

Guest speakers will provide an insight into the work they are conducting at the Rowett Institute in Aberdeen and Microbiotica in Cambridge. There will also be a talk from our head of science, Dr. Andrew Pridmore, about variable oxygen tolerances across different bacterial strains associated with the intestinal microbiota. There will also be a session focused on equipment set-ups and how the group at the Rowett Institute has used various pieces of technology in their workstation to massively increase their experimental throughput.

Register for free today to catch the following talks:

  • Elucidating gut microbial physiology using culture-based approaches – Petra Louis, PhD, Rowett Institute, University of Aberdeen, at 14:10 (BST)
  • Variability in oxygen tolerance among bacterial strains associated with the normal intestinal microbiota – Andrew Pridmore, PhD, Head of Science, Don Whitley Scientific, at 14:30 (BST)
  • Translating precision in microbiome science into transformative medicines and biomarkers – Anne Neville, PhD, Microbiotica, at 15:00 (BST)
  • Evolution of a system for high throughput bacterial growth monitoring – Freda Farquharson, University of Aberdeen and Steve Rogerson, Don Whitley Scientific, at 15:20 (BST)
