In this short introductory course, we will introduce software tools and basic concepts for the preparation and subsequent analysis of metagenomics sequence data with our MGX metagenomics application. The course covers

- Using Linux for quality control and preprocessing of next-gen and third-gen sequencing datasets
- Different state-of-art approaches for taxonomic classification of unassembled metagenome data
- Employing MGX for successful taxonomic and functional assignment

Please be aware that analysis of metabarcoding (i.e. amplicon) data is beyond the scope of this course and will NOT be covered.

Learning goals:
- Quality control and quality assurance
- Taxonomic classification
- Functional assignment

- Basic knowledge in microbiology and NGS-based analysis
- Experience with a Linux command line recommended but not required
