BioZone Workshop Series: Bioinformatic Analysis of 16S rRNA Amplicon Sequencing Data

June 14, 2022 @ 3:30 pm – June 23, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

CREATE for BioZone will host a free hands-on Bioinformatic Analysis Workshop Series on June 14, 16, 21 and 23. The four-day workshop, featuring instructors Dr. Courtney Toth and Dr. Camilla Nesbø, will provide an overview of the tools and techniques used in the bioinformatic analysis of 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing data. Please mark your calendar and register by June 10.

Day 1 (June 14, 3:30-5:00pm ET)
Basic principles of amplicon sequencing.
Introduction to command line for bioinformatics.

Day 2 (June 16, 3:30-5:00pm ET)
Running QIIME 2, a bioinformatics platform for processing microbial sequencing data.
A practice dataset will be provided.

Day 3 (June 21, 3:30-5:00pm ET)
Running PhyloSeq, a bioinformatics platform for analysis and graphical display of microbial sequencing data.

Day 4 (June 23, 3:30-5:00pm ET)
BioZone choice: What bioinformatics tools and/or graphical displays would you like to learn more about?

Cost: Free
Venue: In-person and virtual (Teams)
Register by June 10:

All BioZone members including students, postdocs, staff and principal investigators interested in learning how to do bioinformatic analysis of sequencing data are encouraged to attend. We look forward to your participation!
