Short Course Description:
This 2-day course will teach you how to perform metagenomics analysis with the software packages Qiime2 and R.
Day 1: Understanding the basics of work on the command line, followed by strategies to analyse different types of microbial data (amplicon and shotgun)
Day 2: In the morning, you will prepare sample datasets and analyse them in Qiime2 utilizing its different plug-ins. In the afternoon, you will analyse the same dataset in R with the Dada2 pipeline, followed by multivariate statistical analysis in R. You will then compare the results of the different pipelines.
By the end of the course, participants will understand how to use Qiime 2 and R to prepare raw amplicon and shotgun metagenomic data for analysis, and run some of the statistical tools available in both software packages.
Accommodation is not included in the cost. Some venues have low-cost university accommodation on site or nearby. More detail: see FAQ
