Course Description:
Members of the QIIME development group, led by Greg Caporaso, will teach a three-day hands-on workshop on bioinformatics tools for microbial ecology. The workshop will include lectures covering basic QIIME usage and theory, and hands-on work with QIIME to perform microbiome analysis from raw sequence data through publication- quality statistics and visualizations. The workshop will also cover related bioinformatics tools including DADA2, Emperor, scikit-bio and an Introduction to Applied Bioinformatics. This workshop will provide the foundation on which students can begin using these tools to advance their own studies of microbiome analysis or microbial ecology.

There will be a networking and poster session event on Wednesday, December 12, following the workshop.

This is a hands-on workshop. Participants must bring their laptop.
