Metagenomics Summer School
The Environmental Microbiomes team at Genomics Aotearoa is hosting the annual Metagenomics Summer School once more.
This in-person workshop will be held at the University of Auckland, City Campus, from 5th to 8th September 2023.
The practical, hands-on workshop focuses on prokaryotic metagenomics. It aims to guide learners through the process of analysing metagenomic sequence data, from metagenomic read sequences to curated metagenome-assembled genomes paired with downstream data analyses and visualisation in R.
It also includes the following lessons:
Introduction to Bash shell and scripting (pre-workshop session)
Pragmatic considerations during experiment/sampling planning and decision-making (e.g., how much sequence data do I need? What are the approaches to analysing the data I have?)
Best practices in handling and processing metagenomic data
Viral genome prediction from metagenomic assemblies
We invite learners of all bioinformatics skill levels to register their interest here
Co-hosted by Genomics Aotearoa and NeSI, this online workshop focuses on:
Trimming and filtering
Mapping and read counts
Differential expression analysis
This workshop assumes the learner has no prior experience with RNA-seq but does assume some familiarity with R and bash.
This workshop is fully online and is hands-on. It will be run on the NeSI High Performance Computing (HPC) platforms – you will only require a working computer with an internet connection and a browser.
There is no cost associated with this workshop.
