Analysing the microbiome short course 29-31 March 2017
The development of next generation sequencing technology has led to rapid advances in microbiome study. The Sydney Brenner Institute for Molecular Bioscience and the Pan-African Bioinformatics Network for H3Africa will offer a short-course on the bioinformatics of analysing the microbiome. The course will give an overview of conducting a microbiome study, present some of the most important techniques, and will include hands-on use of key tools. The course will cover analysis both using both 16S RNA gene sequences and shotgun sequencing.
