Registrations are now open for the next edition of theonline course, "METABARCODING IN MICROBIAL ECOLOGY," scheduled for February 5th to February 9th, 2024.
This course offers an immersive journey into the realm of metabarcoding techniques in microbial ecology. We will delve into a wide array of topics, from the bioinformatic processing of next-generation sequencing data to the essential approaches in multivariate statistics. Through a blend of theoretical lectures and hands-on exercises, you will master the computational intricacies of a metabarcoding study, from the initial processing of raw sequencing reads to the final statistical evaluations. By the end of this course, you will be equipped to grasp the potential and limitations of metabarcoding techniques and process your own datasets to address critical questions in your research.
By the conclusion of this course, you will achieve the following objectives:
- Grasp the concepts, potential, and limitations of microbial metabarcoding techniques.
- Learn how to process raw sequencing reads to derive meaningful insights.
- Gain experience in statistically evaluating and visualizing your data.
- Acquire the ability to make informed decisions on best practices for your own data.
