Department of Medicine Seminar Series

Clinical Applications of Bacterial Genomics

Professor Craig Winstanley BSc PhD

The increasing availability and affordability of whole genome sequencing has opened up a number of new pathways to the application of bacterial genomics in a clinical setting. In the context of the importance of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a key pathogen, causing a range of infections, both acute and chronic. In this talk, I will discuss how genomics can be applied for surveillance at a global and national level, to track transmissible lineages and identify cross infection, to study bacterial populations within individual patients (including microbiome analysis), and address future possibilities such as the use of genomics to predict patient responses to therapy.
