Gut Microbiota and Human Health
…environmental microbiologists estimate that less than 2% of bacteria can be cultured in the laboratory. Therefore, it is only with the advent of sequencing technologies that we now have the ability to study complex microbial communities in their entirety, without the biases of culture.
AAV vector development boosted by HiFi sequencing
One of the most important technologies responsible for the acceleration of gene therapy has been the emergence of vectors based on Adeno Associated Viruses (AAVs). In recent years AAVs have become the leading platform for gene therapy delivery
