Our international multidisciplinary group of scientists and educators is addressing the issues of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and microbial ecology in agriculture through research, outreach, and education. By characterizing risks related to AMR and microbial ecology, our center will identify agricultural production practices that are harmful and can be avoided, while also identifying and promoting production practices and interventions that are beneficial or do no harm to the ecosystem or public health. This will allow society to realize “sustainable intensification” of agriculture.
Save the date: 2017 CRWAD Bioinformatics and statistics Workshop Dec. 2nd and 3rd
The Microbial Ecology Group at CSU is pleased to announced an upcoming Short Course and Workshop: “Bioinformatics and Statistics for Shotgun Metagenomic Research,” hosted at the 98th Annual Conference of Research Workers in Animal Diseases (CRWAD). This event is designed to provide participants with the basic background and tools needed to analyze the microbiome and resistome data obtained from shotgun metagenomic sequencing.
