Objectives
Metagenomics is gaining importance due to low cost next generation sequencing technologies. This training will introduce participants to the end-to-end solutions for analyzing metagenomic data, starting from data quality analysis, alignment, community profiling, taxonomic comparison and novel taxa discovery.

Highlights
Participants will work with a Graphic User Interface based Linux Desktop environment in the Amazon Cloud, that is specially configured to run popular open source metagenomics analysis tools. Participants will also receive a cookbook style manual for all the hands-on exercises.

Who should attend

  • Researchers and academics who are aspiring to learn the popular tools and techniques to analyze metagenomic/microbiome data.
  • Clinicians who are interested in discovering metagenomics based biomarkers for diagnostic and therapeutic uses.
  • Biomedical students who are interested in pursuing research on metagenomics.
  • Scientists in program administration interested in learning the standard tools for metagenomic analysis.

Prerequisites:
Participants should be comfortable with basic computer skills.
