Course description

The Metagenomics course covers Metagenomics and metatranscriptomics of prokaryotes, eukaryotes and viruses. Topics are Metagenomics-specific issues like calling taxa, functional annotation, metagenome assembly and comparative Metagenomics.

Target audience

The course is aimed at PhD students and post-docs or researchers with a similar level, but scientific programmers and data analysts with a background in biology and bioinformatics may also attend. Some bioinformatics experience (e.g. Linux, Bash or scripting) is required.
Participants will be invited to introduce their own research questions. Towards the end of the course remaining questions specific to your research will be discussed with the group.
