Exploring Human Host-Microbiome Interactions in Health and Disease Virtual Conference

October 21 @ 12:00 pm - November 1 @ 1:30 pm

This meeting will update current knowledge of how various microbiomes (skin, oral, gut, lung, non-bacterial etc.) communicate with the host and the factors that influence these interactions. The programme will feature new developments enabled by new technologies. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in discussions on how to apply recent discoveries to disease processes, health restoration and maintenance.

Topics will include:

  • Manipulating the microbiome
  • Immune influences on the microbiome
  • Next generation probiotics
  • Host-microbiome interactions
  • Oral and nasal microbiome
  • Fecal microbiota transplant

The abstract deadline is 8th September 2020, registration deadline is 13th October 2020. Please see the Wellcome Genome Campus website for more information.

With any Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) test ordered, a Record of Discussion (RoD) form will also need to be submitted. This document is to record the patient’s consent for genomic testing and their choice on taking part in research. Guidance on the patient choice conversation can be found here
 
This RoD form will be available for clinicians to download from this webpage. Once completed with the patient, it can be send to the lab with the corresponding test order form and sample.
Tests available to order will be listed in the National Genomic Test Directory. A test order form will soon be made available for clinicians on this webpage to download and complete. This form will include the address of the laboratory that the appropriate sample and completed form needs to be sent to.
 
Until the new Genomic Laboratory Service goes live, please continue to follow existing test order processes.
 
Later this year, the online test ordering tool for Whole Genome Sequencing will be integrated into the National Genomics Informatics System (NGIS) and clinicians will be able to search or filter to find a clinical indication, confirm eligibility criteria and start the test request process for their patient.
