16S rRNA gene sequences have been widely used to study microbial phylogeny and taxonomy, also in a growing number of DZIF projects. The software suite QIIME is one of the most popular choices to analyze such data. Its successor, QIIME 2, was recently announced and all users are encouraged to switch to the new version - yet many things changed from QIIME 1 and little hands-on experience exists within DZIF.
Therefore we conduct a dedicated QIIME 2 workshop, which arguably is the best opportunity for you to learn about new analysis workflows in QIIME 2, relevant for all meta'omics projects involving 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing.
Wed, Sep 4, 9am–6pm. QIIME2: metadata, importing, quality control, rarefaction
Thu, Sep 5, 9am–6pm. QIIME2: alpha and beta diversity metrics, statistics, visualizations
Fri, Sep 6, 9am–(open end). PICRUSt2: Functional metagenome inference, analysis your own data
