September 6-8: Microbial Community Analysis Workshop

 

This workshop covers amplicon-based microbial analysis and methodology using high throughput sequencing technologies, and ancillary topics, including:

  • Differences between community analysis with amplicons versus shotgun metagenomics and metatranscriptomics

  • Experimental design

  • Sequencing library preparation techniques and considerations (lecture only)

  • Sequence data quality assurance and expectations

  • Processing of amplicon reads (using the python application dbcAmplicons)

  • Analysis of community structure (using R and vegan)

  • Lecture on metagenome assembly and metatranscriptome assembly and annotation

  • Post analysis and visualization (using R)

For this workshop, it is strongly recommended that participants have basic familiarity with the Linux/Unix (or Mac) command line, as well as familiarity with general biological concepts and an enthusiasm for learning about microbial data analysis!
