Seminar with Dr. James Chong- Making sense of sewage: a Multi-Omics Approach

Resource recovery from wastewater increasingly relies on the actions of a complex community of anaerobic microbes. The Chong group is identifying routes for the optimisation of biogas production from organic waste, with the long-term goal of identifying means of manipulating these communities at scale. The group is mapping microbial community changes using a variety of ‘omics approaches. In this seminar, Chong will discuss how nanopore sequencing and machine learning are enhancing our metagenomics analyses, our initial foray into untargeted metabolomics and, how high throughput growth screens could be applied to microbial community optimisation.
