Dear all,

registrations are now open for the Physalia course on Environmental Metagenomics, which will take place ONLINE from the 26th to the 30th of April:

Instructors: Dr. Antti Karkman and Dr. Igor S Pessi (University of Helsinki, Finland).

During this one week course you will learn state-of-the-art bioinformatic approaches to analyse metagenomic data. We will cover both read- and assembly-based methods, focusing on the strenght of each of these methods depending on the research question. We will use data from both short- (e.g. Illumina) and long-read (e.g. Nanopore) sequencing platforms, as it improves dramatically metagenome-assembled genomes (MAG) assembling and binning compared to short-read-only methods.

Learning Outcomes

By completing this course, you will:

  • Understand the basics of metagenomic sequencing and bioinformatic approaches to the analyis of metagenomic data

  • Be able to plan and execute a metagenomic sequencing project

  • Have an up-to-date knowledge on the bioinformatic tools and best practices for the analysis of metagenomes

  • Be able to choose the right tools and approaches to answer your specific research question

  • Have confidence to learn new methods needed to answer your research question
