Webinar Fungal Genomics – April 22nd 2021 

Fungal genomics is a dynamic field that involves various sequencing platforms and a wide variation of bioinformatics applications.

In this webinar, organized by the Netherlands Society for Medical Mycology (NVMy) and the Division Microbial Genomics of the Royal Dutch Society of Microbiology (KNVM-DMG), we will dive into the diversity of genomic applications currently applied in the field of medical mycology. Participation is free but registration is required. A link to the online presentation platform will be provided shortly before the meeting.
