Default Microbial Community Analysis Workshop, Sept. 6-8

Now in its 10th year, the UC Davis Bioinformatics Core Training Program will teach a three day workshop on Microbial Community Analysis, September 6-8, 2017!

This workshop covers amplicon-based microbial analysis and methodology using high throughput sequencing technologies, and ancillary topics, including:
  • Differences between community analysis with amplicons versus shotgun metagenomics and metatranscriptomics
  • Experimental design
  • Sequencing library preparation techniques and considerations (lecture only)
  • Sequence data quality assurance and expectations
  • Processing of amplicon reads (using the python application dbcAmplicons)
  • Analysis of community structure (using R and vegan)
  • Lecture on metagenome assembly and metatranscriptome assembly and annotation
  • Post analysis and visualization (using R)

For this workshop, it is strongly recommended that participants have basic familiarity with the Linux/Unix (or Mac) command line, as well as familiarity with general biological concepts and an enthusiasm for learning about microbial data analysis!

For more information, and to register, go to All registration is “first-come, first-served”. There is no application process.
