Timezone: WEST

Sponsors: Oeiras Valley

Contact: Pedro L. Fernandes, Training Coordinator, pfern@igc.gulbenkian.pt

Venue: Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência

City: Oeiras

County: Oeiras

Country: Portugal

Postcode: 2780-156

Scientific topic: Metagenomic sequencing, Metagenomics

Target audience:
  • bioinformaticians
  • Microbiologists
  • Drug resistance
Description:

This course will give a comprehensive introduction to the research field of metagenomics. It will cover the basic concepts of microbiome analysis of shotgun metagenomic data using state of the art bioinformatics (amplicon sequencing will not be covered). The analysis methods that are being introduced are generic for all types of microbiomes, but we will be using data from the human microbiome as showcases. The course will start with the main preprocessing steps of raw sequence data, before various downstream analysis will be covered separately. These include taxonomic analysis, assembly, binning, and finally functional analysis with focus on antibiotic resistance genes. The theoretical part for each topic will be introduced via lectures, followed by practical hands-on exercises.

Capacity: 10
