We are happy to announce that Dr. Jacquelyn Meisel is the winner of our 100-sample BoosterShot Sweepstakes. Dr. Meisel is exploring computational approaches to better understand host-microbe interactions as a postdoctoral associate within Dr. Mihai Pop’s research group at the University of Maryland College Park. Her project will detail strain-level variation in the vaginal microbiome from 20 weeks of gestation to post-delivery. To help accelerate her research, CoreBiome is providing free DNA Extraction, Absolute Quantification, BoosterShot Sequencing and Core Analysis for 100 samples.
We would like to thank all applicants of this sweepstakes and mention that we received applications for many strong and noteworthy projects that will undoubtedly move microbiome research forward. To help make species-level profiling accessible to all, we will be reaching out to all applicants of the sweepstakes with a special offer to help solve each project’s unique microbiome problems.
