The workshop will include lectures covering basic QIIME and SILVA usage and theory, and hands-on work with QIIME to perform microbiome analysis from raw sequence data through publication-quality statistics and visualizations. The workshop will also cover related bioinformatics tools including DADA2, Emperor, and scikit-bio. This workshop will provide the foundation on which students can begin using these tools to advance their own studies of microbiome analysis or microbial ecology.
• Understand the most recent QIIME2 features for microbial community analysis
• Select the best databases and workflow and parameters to perform the different steps for microbial community analysis
• Understand and apply on their own datasets different phylogenetic and non-phylogenetic metrics to compare microbial diversity samples
This is a hands-on workshop. Participants must bring their laptop. Basic knowledge of Linux command line is nice to have, but not must.
