Metagenomics Bioinformatics by European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)
Metagenomics Bioinformatics is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory - European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL - EBI) and will be held during Jul 16 - 20, 2018 at EMBL-EBI European Bioinformatics Institute Main Building, Cambridge, England, United Kingdom.
This course is aimed at life scientists who are working in the field of metagenomics, in the early stages of their data analysis, and who may already have some prior experience in using bioinformatics in their research.
This course will cover the use of publicly available resources to manage, share, analyse and interpret metagenomics data, including marker gene, whole gene shotgun (WGS) and assembly-based approaches. Delegates will gain hands-on experience using a range of data resources and tools, interspersed with lectures. Additionally, there will be the opportunity to discuss the challenges facing researchers in the field.
After this course you should be able to:
• Submit data to public resources for metagenomics
• Interpret results and compare with other metagenomics datasets
• Use a range of tools to perform some data analyses
• Discuss the pitfalls and challenges in the field
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
