MEEGID in NOLA

UCVM-ers in New Orleans

At the end of October, folks from UCVM attended the Molecular Epidemiology & Evolutionary Genomics in Infectious Disease (MEEGID) meeting held at Loyola University in New Orleans.

The topics at the meeting covered a whole range of microbiology, virology and parasitology research. The advances in DNA sequencing are being embraced by the first two groups and advancing our understanding on disease dynamics. The challenge is for us parasitologists to follow suit. We face a number of additional hurdles (a future post), but we have the tools to progress.
