Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde: The dual face of metagenomics in phylogenetic analysis

The aim of this lecture is to present the impact of metagenomics and single-cell genomics on public databases. These new powerful approches allow us to have access to the diversity of life on our planet. However, care has to be taken when using these data for posterior analyses, such as phylogenetic studies, as critical errors can still be present in the databases. This course will incorporate examples taken from real studies, and we will investigate methods used for error detection.
