Microbial Shotgun Metagenomics - 5&7 April 2022
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 workshop will be held over two days on Tuesday 5 and Thursday 7 April, 10am-4pm, with registration opening 9.30am on Tuesday.

The deadline to register is Monday 22/03. You will hear later that week whether you have been invited and will need to confirm your attendance.
