Microbiome Bioinformatics with QIIME 2

Jan. 4, 2021 - Jan. 8, 2021
Online (via FAES at the National Institutes of Health)

Members of the QIIME 2 team, led by the Caporaso Lab at Northern Arizona University, will teach a five-day online workshop on bioinformatics tools for microbiome science. The workshop will include lectures covering QIIME 2 usage and theory, and interactive work with QIIME 2 to perform microbiome analysis from raw sequence data through publication-quality statistics and visualizations. This workshop will also feature several opportunities for attendees to network with other researchers in the field, as well as with QIIME 2 developers and other experts.

This workshop will occur from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM (ET).

Topics will include:

  • Introduction to QIIME 2
  • Core concepts
  • QIIME 2 types, formats, and metadata
  • Demultiplexing and quality control
  • Phylogenetic reconstruction
  • Measuring alpha and beta diversity
  • Importing and exporting data
  • Taxonomic analysis
  • Differential abundance
  • QIIME 2 plugin highlights

And more!

Computer and Internet access are required. Simultaneous access to two screens is highly recommended for best learning experience. Examples include one computer with two screens, one laptop and one tablet, two laptops, etc.

Logistics: This online course will comprise a blend of pre-recorded and live lectures. Pre-recorded lectures will be made available prior to each day of the workshop, that way attendees with schedule conflicts can stay caught up with the material. There will also be interactive command-line based tutorial sessions, where attendees will perform microbiome analyses using QIIME 2, online. We will also host many live question-and-answer sessions, as well as general discussion sessions.

Registration is open to the public at the link provided above.
