The 6th Applied Bioinformatics and Public Health Microbiology conference provides a multidisciplinary forum to highlight how advances microbial and viral genomics, bioinformatics and sequencing technology are being translated to meet the needs of public health.

The programme will focus on the use of sequencing technologies to understand microbial diversity, evolution, pathogenesis, virulence, antimicrobial resistance and host-pathogen interactions within the context of public health microbiology. We will review and share best practice of implementing sequence technology in routine frontline diagnostics and real-time surveillance. The conference will also focus on the implications of using large-scale high-throughput data in the public health setting. There will be the opportunity for bioinformaticians working in this area to showcase the innovative tools that they have developed.

The conference attracts international participants working in a range of settings including diagnostic and reference microbiology and virology laboratories, research institutes, bioinformatics departments, surveillance centres and hospital settings. This conference will have strong representation from clinical microbiologists and virologists and clinical bioinformaticians, to ensure appropriate migration of these technologies to diagnostic and surveillance applications.
