Event description

Description


10 tickets available for the wetlab session and 20 tickets available for the bioinformatics data analysis session


This genome-centric metagenomics workshop will teach you how to obtain provisional whole genomes of individual populations from a mixed microbial community using metagenomics. The workshop has two sessions and an optional linux boot camp.


Wetlab Session: this three-day session (June 20-22, 2018) is dedicated towards wetlab work to generate metagenomic libraries. It takes place in EEEL551, EEEL Building, University of Calgary.

  • Shotgun metagenome library construction
  • Library clean-up and size selection
  • Demo of sequencing metagenome libraries on Illumina MiSeq
  • Quality control and troubleshooting tips

Bioinformatics Data analysis Session: this five-day session (June 25-29, 2018) is focused on metagenomic data analysis. It takes place in EEEL402, EEEL Building, University of Calgary

  • Metagenome reads quality check and quality control
  • Assemble quality controlled reads into contigs
  • Annotate assembled contigs
  • Map quality controlled reads onto contigs
  • Bin contigs into provisional genome bins
  • Extract taxonomic, functional, and pathway annotations for each binned genomes
  • Symposium with invited speakers (June 28, 2018)

This workshop is developed by EBG Group in the University of Calgary. For more detailed information related to the workshop, please visit: http://ebg.ucalgary.ca/metagenomics-workshop
