we will run a Workshop on "eDNA Metabarcoding" at the Laval University in Quebec City in Canada.
After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) understand the potential and capabilities of eDNA barcoding and metabarcoding, (2) run complete analyses of eDNA metabarcoding pipelines and obtain diversity inventories and ecologically interpretable data from raw next-generation sequence data and (3) design their own eDNA projects, including bioinformatic data analysis and planning of laboratory work. All course materials (including copies of presentations, practical exercises, data files, and example scripts prepared by the instructing team) will be provided electronically to participants.
While this course will focus on eDNA metabarcoding, however targeted single species detection and other alternatives will also be explored, as they can sometimes be suitable metabarcoding alternatives.
