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