29th Annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference

W15: INF/MIC: Microbiome & Emerging Pathogens

Oct 9, 2015 2:00pm ‐ Oct 9, 2015 3:45pm

Standard: $49.99

Description

The dynamic interactions of the microbial populations in the airway of CF patients can drive short & long term health. Newer technologies & bioinformatic approaches provide a comprehensive characterization & demonstrate interactions in unprecedented detail. This workshop highlights the CF microbiome, emerging pathogens & their impact on the health of CF patients.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe new technologies & bioinformatic approaches that allow the comprehensive analysis of the CF microbiome.
  2. Identify known & emerging pathogens in CF patients & how they might interact with other microbial pathogens to drive CF patient health.
  3. Discuss genomic & phenotypic adaptations of the microbial communities to survive in the CF airway.
