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 and Systems and Synthetic Biology, Wageningen University & Research, the Netherlands and the 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 including a teaser for metagenomics-based studies. We will use NG-Tax and R based tools like Phyloseq, microbiome and ggplot2 for downstream data analysis and visualization.
The primary aim is introduce microbial community data analysis. There will be talks and discussion on theory and methodology for analysis of microbial community data. We will cover topics ranging from design of studies, sequencing technologies, importance of controls and standardized DNA processing. Supervised hands-on training covering analyses from raw reads using NG-Tax, downstream analysis in R for exploration and analysis of microbiome sequencing data will be priority. There will be a strong focus on using R, R Studio for moving towards reproducible and open science.
Anyone who plans to or is currently doing high throughput microbial community analysis.
No prior knowledge of R software is required.
The spring school will be organised at the campus of Wageningen University & Research, The Netherlands.
