“Wastewater detection: the next COVID frontier”

Speaker: Dr. Dominic Frignon

Professor Frigon researches wastewater systems and environmental biotechnology with a focus on microbial community dynamics using metagenomics and mathematical modeling. In recent years, he has been developing metagenomics tools for the surveillance of antimicrobial resistance in municipal wastewater. Can wastewater predict where the next COVID outbreak will occur? Come and hear about the latest efforts to recover the information that gets flushed.
