There continues to be a disjoint between the emergence of new diagnostic technologies and venues to train new physicians on how to apply them. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has become a very important tool for a wide range of clinical applications. Technical complexity and cost have been the major obstacles in incorporating these technologies into the classroom. We opted to use the MinION, which is a new portable DNA sequencer that can produce data in real-time at a relatively low cost, for a...

Health systems worldwide are facing unprecedented challenges, as a result of a convergence of major threats to our social and population health systems. For an epidemic of any magnitude, prevention and preparation by healthcare personnel in clinical settings are essential, both locally and globally. The need for the development of domestic and international training programs in the expanding field of emerging and reemerging infectious diseases is well recognized but particularly urgent at this t...

Disease-associated alterations of the intestinal microbiota composition, known as dysbiosis, have been well described in several functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. Several studies have described alterations in the gastric microbiota in functional dyspepsia, but very few have looked at the duodenum.Here, we explored the upper GI tract microbiota of inpatients with upper GI dyspeptic symptoms, and compared them to achalasia controls, as there is no indication for an esophagogastroduodenos...
