Isme14 - Bioinformatics Workshop
Using QIIME and MG-RAST to study microbial communities
18 August 2012, Copenhagen University
Members of the QIIME and MG-RAST development groups, led by Greg Caporaso, Rob Knight, and Folker Meyer, will teach a full-day workshop on bioinformatics tools for microbial ecology. The morning will focus on lectures covering QIIME and MG-RAST, and in the afternoon students will work hands-on with these tools via Amazon Web Services (for QIIME) and the MG-RAST web server. Students will interact directly with core developers on the QIIME and MG-RAST projects to get a hands-on introduction to QIIME and MG-RAST. This workshop will provide the foundation on which students can begin using these tools to advance their own studies of microbial ecology.
Because we expect more applications that we can accept, our goal is to give priority to applicants who will immediately be putting the skills developed at the workshop into practice.
The cost for the workshop will be USD$200 per participant. Payment will be made after your application has been accepted. Copenhagen University is a short metro ride from the Bella Center, where ISME 14 will be held, so participants should plan to arrive at ISME 14 one day early for the Bioinformatics Workshop. Applications are due 22 April, and all applicants will be notified by 23 April. Note: Application deadline has been extended by seven days to 22 April.
