Microbiome Bioinformatics with QIIME 2 workshop, Dec 12-14 2018, Bethesda, MD, USA

(Greg Caporaso) #1

Members of the QIIME 2 development group will teach a three-day 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. On the third day we’ll have breakout sessions where attendees can work with the instructors on their own data sets, learn about developing QIIME 2 plugins, and other topics to be determined based on student interest. We’ll also hold a poster and networking session the first evening where attendees can present their own microbiome work. This workshop will provide the foundation on which students can begin using these tools to advance their own studies of microbial ecology.

This workshop will be a great way to learn about tools that will put you on the cutting edge of microbiome bioinformatics. You can get additional information about this workshop and register at: https://faes.org/biotech89
