Microbiome Bioinformatics with QIIME 2, January 8-10 2020, NIH, Bethesda, Maryland, USA

Members of the QIIME 2 team will teach a three-day hands-on workshop on bioinformatics tools for microbial ecology. The workshop will include lectures covering basic QIIME 2 usage and theory, and hands-on work with QIIME 2 to perform microbiome analysis from raw sequence data through publication-quality statistics and visualizations. This workshop will also feature several opportunities for attendees to network with other researchers in the field, as well as with QIIME 2 "experts".

A poster session will be held on the first evening of the workshop — attendees are encouraged to showcase their research here. Don’t have a study to show? Feel free to use this opportunity to pitch your project to your peers and solicit feedback. Not using QIIME 2 in your study? No worries, we won’t judge you! Day three of the workshop will include parallel sessions where students can choose to work with instructors to install QIIME 2 on their computers, begin analysis of their own data in QIIME 2, learn about developing QIIME 2 plugins, or cover one of several other contemporary topics in microbiome bioinformatics. This workshop will provide you with the foundation needed to begin using these tools to advance your own microbiome research projects.

Registration is open nowact now to secure a seat at the early-bird rate. Late registration will begin on September 16th, 2019.

Hope to see you in Maryland!


Is it possible to get a more detailed syllabus/agenda for this meeting? I have some training with Qiime, but only at an introductory level. I would like to determine whether this will further enhance my knowledge, or mostly cover what I have already learned.

Thanks! Brian

Hi @l.brian.patrick! We don’t yet have a version of the course schedule ready to share, but we will update this post once we do. Thanks!

Would there be a certificate of attendance?


Yes! Certificates of attendance are available upon request.
