Antimicrobial Resistance – Genomes, Big Data and Emerging Technologies, UK

This conference will bring together basic researchers, computer scientists, clinicians and policy makers interested in pathogen and human/host genomics, epidemiology and surveillance, machine learning, development of novel diagnostic tools and translation of AMR-data into clinical practice to discuss their findings.

This year the conference will highlight the role of genomic evidence – from internal and external environments as well as its role in the detection, tracking and control of antimicrobial resistance, especially in low- and middle-income countries. We will also discuss the role of vaccines in AMR and how bacterial genomics and metagenomics can be translated into clinical practice.
