EMBL Course: Microbial Metagenomics: A 360º Approach

12 June 2019 - 19 June 2019

EMBL Advanced Training Centre, Heidelberg 69117, Germany

Course participants will learn all about experimental design, how to prepare metagenomic libraries from soil samples and are invited to bring their own environmental samples from soils or aquatic environments (previously filtered). The bioinformatic analysis is a key part of the course, where students will learn how to process data from raw sequence to the application of algorithms for analysing metagenomic datasets. Trainers will provide short lectures with follow-up hands-on exercises in order to have the participants learning and assessing their knowledge.
