This is an interactive workshop from leaders in the field of microbiome analysis. It will provide hands-on training in accessing cloud-based Human Microbiome Project data and utilizing Docker-based workflows to perform metagenome shotgun and 16S sequence analysis. Open source tools (e.g., HUMAnN, Qiime, MetaViz) will be utilized for multiple types of analyses including metabolic profiling, phylogenetic profiling, assembly, annotation, and data visualization. Attendees will leave the workshop with practical experience using a freely available Docker image they can take home and share with others or apply to their own studies.
