Workshop: Microbiome Analysis using QIIME2
Micromon (Monash MNHS), in conjunction with the EPHM Lab (Monash Engineering) and the School of Biological Sciences, would like to invite you to register for our upcoming three-day workshop and symposium. A half-day symposium will provide attendees with the opportunity to talk briefly about their work in a relaxed atmosphere with a combined question and discussion session. A half-day theory-only session will cover biological sample and metadata collection, sample processing, DNA extraction, amplicon-based sequencing library construction, and Illumina next-generation sequencing. The following two days will include a hands-on workshop covering, data analysis and best practices using the QIIME2 data analysis package.
