Hands-on microbiome data analysis: tools for understanding microbial communities in health and disease

EVENT : C3BI Training

Main speaker : Gregorio Iraola, from Institut Pasteur de Montevideo Date : 03-12-2018 at 09:00 am Location : Institut Pasteur de Montevideo

This course aims to provide the theoretical and practical concepts for standard bioinformatic analysis in the field of microbiome research. The course will focus on the application of state-of-the-art software tools for the analysis of environmental and host-associated microbiomes, with particular emphasis on understanding how they change or constitute a risk for human health. The course will have expert lectures and theoretical/practical data analysis sessions with real datasets.


STUDENT’S PRE-REQUISITES • Directed to post-graduation (M.Sc. or Ph.D.) students. • Basic concepts of high-throughput sequencing technologies. • Basic understanding of metagenomics and microbial ecology. • Basic skills in the Linux terminal.

First Fiocruz-IP-USP Hands-on Course Bioinformatics and Biostatistics

Upcoming Events : First Fiocruz-IP-USP Hands-on Course Bioinformatics and Biostatistics. 19-30th October 2015 in Ribeirão Preto, Brazil

Date : 19-30th October 2015 Location : Ribeirão Preto, Brazil Speakers/Trainers : Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP) and the University of Sao Paulo.

First Fiocruz-IP-USP Hands-on Course Bioinformatics and Biostatistics

The aim of this course is to provide students with theory and practical tools to analyze Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data.  The course is composed of a theory and practice lessons . In the first week theory sessions will cover the main kind of HTS analyses (re-sequencing and variant analysis, de-novo sequencing, transcriptomics, ChIP-Seq, metagenomics), in addition to some general bioinformatics tools and Biostatistics. The second week is dedicated to practice, in which the students work with their own data in small groups with a mentor that guides them. The practice week is designed so the course is of immediate use to each student. We expect the students to go back to their countries with the necessary knowledge to continue working on their own data. Lastly, this course will also promote interactions through bioinformatics between Fiocruz, the Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP) and the University of Sao Paulo. The course will take place from the 19-30th October in Ribeirão Preto, Brazil. For more information and to apply visit: http://bioinformatics.fmrp.usp.br/curso2015/
