      Biography
        Sean Taylor holds a Ph.D. and an MBA from McGill University and has spent the past ten years publishing articles, providing seminars, workshops and training videos to help the global scientific community achieve excellent data from western blotting, qPCR and digital PCR experiments. He has managed teams of Field Application Scientists (FAS) in Canada for over a decade who have helped thousands of scientists achieve their research goals. In his current role as North American FAS Manager for GenScript, he leads a dedicated team to continue the tradition of providing pertinent and timely information to help the scientific community overcome research hurdles to accelerate the production of high quality, publishable data, cost-effectively.

      Abstract

      Sean Taylor will be presenting on the following:

      Title: COVID-19 infection mechanism, rate of infection and tools for testing and monitoring the disease spread

      Abstract:Since COVID-19 was first reported in Wuhan, China last November, 2019, the virus has spread rapidly around the globe. Since the virus has a relatively long latent period and can also give a wide range of symptoms, many of the infected may unknowingly circulate disease throughout the population. Mass testing overcomes this problem by assuring more of the infected are aware and undergoing self-quarantine. This talk describes the major infection mechanism, rate of infection and the impact of social distancing on COVID-19 transmission with solutions and tools to test and monitor disease spread.

      Dr. Manzhu Kang will be presenting on the following:

      Title: Accelerate COVID-19 Antibody Discovery with Single B-Cell Technology

      Abstract: Antibody discovery for COVID-19 is as arduous and strenuous as finding a needle in a haystack. Single B-cell technology (SBCT) is indispensable for accessing a large antibody repertoire of an immune experienced animal and the ability to interrogate each individual cells, rather than to measure the average of a cell pool. In this talk, we will 1) introduce the general approaches of SBCT 2) GenScript offerings with case study; 3) summarize the advantages of SBCT screening
