Register for Shotgun metagenomics - Tuesday 1st & Thursday 3rd June 2021
There are many unknown and unculturable microbes found in a vast array of different environments. Shotgun metagenomics is an approach to capture all the genetic information in a sample, providing the taxonomic and metabolic information of all present organisms. In this course we will analyse shotgun metagenomic sequencing data from stool samples to compare western and Korean diets. At the end of the course you will be able to quantify the taxonomic composition with Kraken2 & Bracken, and determine the metabolic profile with the bioBakery suite of tools.

Places are restricted to UK-based researchers and only 20 places are available so please only register if you intend on attending.

The session will be on Tuesday 1st & Thursday 3rd June 2021, 10am-4pm.

The deadline to register is Monday 24th May.
