  • Microbiome and Metagenome Data analysis workshop, April 1-5, 2019

    Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic, See here for full event details and apply online

    This workshop covers microbiomics / metagenomics analysis from quality control, filtering and assembly/clustering to taxonomic classification, functional assignment and comparative metagenomics.
    Both community analysis of amplicon sequencing data as well as analysis of whole genome shotgun sequencing data will be covered including methods for statistical comparisons of multiple metagenomic samples.
    You will be briefly introduced into the Linux operating system and in this environment you will analyze sequencing data using various publicly available tools.

    Who should attend?
    This workshop is aimed at life scientists and bioinformaticians working or being interested in the field of metagenomics / microbiomics. No prior knowledge of metagenomic / microbiomics sequences analysis or specific programming skills are required.

    During the workshop…
    • Trainers will provide lectures with follow-up hands-on exercises in order to have the participants learning and assessing their knowledge
    • All workshop participants will perform all steps of data analysis tasks themselves!
    • The powerful computer infrastructure available at the conference center will be used (no personal laptops are required/allowed)

    Workshop agenda:
    Day 1: Linux as a scientific tool - Get to know the environment
    • General introduction to data analysis
    • Introduction to the Linux system
