Organizer: University of Cambridge

Host institution: University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training

Start: Thursday, 23 April 2020 @ 08:30

End: Friday, 24 April 2020 @ 15:30

Venue: Craik-Marshall Building

City: Cambridge

Country: United Kingdom

Postcode: CB2 3AR

Scientific topic: Data mining, Data visualisation, Metagenomics, Bioinformatics

Target audience:
  • The course is aimed at biologists interested in microbiology
  • prokaryotic genomics
  • analysis of complex microbiomes and antimicrobial resistance.
  • Graduate students
  • Postdocs and Staff members from the University of Cambridge
  • Institutions and other external Institutions or individuals
Description:

This two days course will focus on the theory and applications of metagenomics, for the analysis of complex microbiomes (microbial communities). The course will include theoretical (~40%) and practical (~60%) training. We will start with the fastest, simplest and cheapest amplicon based methods and will go up to the Hi-C metagenomics methods that give highly detailed results on the complex microbial communities. The practical component will cover bioinformatics analysis of metagenomics.

The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
