microbiome R package

Three day spring school on basics of high throughput 16S rRNA gene sequencing data analysis. This spring school is organised in collaboration with VLAG graduate school, Laboratory of Microbiology, Laboratory of Systems and Synthetic Biology, Wageningen University & Research, the Netherlands and Department of Mathematics and Statistics University of Turku, Finland. This year it will be held at Wageningen University & Research. We will cover topics related to basics of sequencing and microbial community analysis. We will use NG-Tax and R based tools like Phyloseq, microbiome and ggplot2 for downstream data analysis and visualization.
