Microbiome Bioinformatics with QIIME 2 (FULL)

Dec. 12, 2018 - Dec. 14, 2018
Bethesda, Maryland

Members of the QIIME 2 development group, led by Greg Caporaso, will teach a three-day hands-on workshop on bioinformatics tools for microbial ecology. The workshop will include lectures covering basic QIIME 2 usage and theory, and hands-on work with QIIME 2 to perform microbiome analysis from raw sequence data through publication-quality statistics and visualizations. Day three of the workshop will include parallel sessions where students can choose to work with instructors to install QIIME 2 on their computers, begin analysis of their own data in QIIME 2, learn about developing QIIME 2 plugins, or cover one of several other contemporary topics in microbiome bioinformatics. This workshop will provide you with foundation needed to begin using these tools to advance your own microbiome research projects.
