Registrations are now open for the 6th edition of the Physalia course on "Eukaryotic Metabarcoding", which will be held online from the 22nd to the 26th of February 2021.
Instructors: Dr. Owen Wangensteen (University of Tromsø) and Dr. Daniel Marquina (Swedish Museum of Natural History)
This workshop gives an overview of metabarcoding procedures with an emphasis on practical problem-solving and hands-on work using analysis pipelines on real datasets. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) understand the potential and capabilities of metabarcoding, (2) run complete analyses of metabarcoding pipelines and obtain diversity inventories and ecologically interpretable data from raw next-generation sequence data and (3) design their own metabarcoding projects, using bespoke primer sets and custom reference databases. 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.
The syllabus has been planned for people which have some previous experience running simple commands in Linux and using the R environment (preferently RStudio) for performing basic plots and statistical procedures.
