Course Description
Members of the QIIME development group, led by Greg Caporaso, will teach a two-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.

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

Note: This workshop will be on QIIME2 platform only.  QIIME1 will officially no longer be supported as of 1 Jan 2018
