The Salivary Microbiome. Methodologies and Application

Activity: OtherTypes of External academic engagement - Invited talk


The rapid advancements of sequencing technologies has lead to an explosion of studies on the human microbiome. There is currently no standardised methodology for studying the human salivary (oral) microbiome for metagenomic sequencing platforms. Here we evaluate commonly used protocols for their suitability for studying the salivary microbiome Importance of method standardisation Saliva collection techniques DNA extraction standardisation Salivary metagenomics Metagenomic analysis pipeline
