2023 Metagenomics Summer School
The Environmental Microbiomes team at Genomics Aotearoa is hosting the annual Metagenomics Summer School once more at the University of Auckland, City Campus, September 5-8, 2023.
This practical, hands-on in-person workshop focuses on prokaryotic metagenomics. It aims to guide learners through the process of analysing metagenomic sequence data, from metagenomic read sequences to curated metagenome-assembled genomes paired with downstream data analyses and visualisation in R. It also includes the following lessons:
- Introduction to Bash shell and scripting (pre-workshop session)
- Pragmatic considerations during experiment/sampling planning and decision-making (e.g., how much sequence data do I need? What are the approaches to analysing the data I have?)
- Best practices in handling and processing metagenomic data
- Viral genome prediction from metagenomic assemblies
Learners of all bioinformatics skill levels are invited to register their interest.
