Biostatistics & Bioinformatics for Modelling the Microbiome

Gaining more utility and clinical insights from microbiome data is a clear focus within the microbiome research community – and this requires the application of appropriate biostatistical methods and the development of new bioinformatic tools for analyzing large microbiome datasets. This inaugural congress will bring together leaders from across academia and industry to discuss biostatistical methods and cutting-edge bioinformatic tools for advancing microbiome research and product commercialization. Attendees will learn about biostatistical and bioinformatic challenges specific to the microbiome field, and will hear from microbiome-focused research groups about a wide array of new bioinformatics software, workflows, and applications for analysing metagenomic data.

Scientific Advisory Committee

Kristina Campbell
Principal at KC Microbiome Communications Group Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Science & medical writer and consultant. Expert in strategy, communications, and engagement in microbiome science.

Written and multi-media content is just the beginning: KC Microbiome Communications Group works for clients throughout Europe and North America to advise on product development, shape education and communications strategy, and foster genuine engagement with healthcare professionals and consumers. We help bring microbiome science into various educational and policy initiatives. Our elite team of writers, designers, and web professionals specialize in topics related to gut microbiota, probiotics, prebiotics, fermented foods, and microbiome therapeutics.

Aside from leading this communications team, I'm passionate about sharing scientifically accurate information with audiences around the world. I serve as contributing editor at Microbiome Times, and I've authored dozens of media articles, online and in print. I've also written two books: (1) The Well-Fed Microbiome (Rockridge Press, 2016), and (2) Gut Microbiota: Interactive Effects on Nutrition and Health (Elsevier, 2018), with co-authors Edward Ishiguro & Natasha Haskey.
