ONLINE COURSE – Introduction to Multi’omics Data Analysis from Microbial Communities (MOMC01) This course will be delivered live

27th July 2021 - 30th July 2021


Course Overview:

The aim of this course is to provide a thorough introduction to computational approaches for the analysis of multi-omics data from microbial communities with a focus on metagenomic and metatranscriptomic data. We will start from raw sequencing files, introduce different bioinformatic approaches to process sequencing data, followed by multivariate statistical analysis and different visualization techniques. The course will consist of a mixture of lectures and hands-on tutorials. On the last day, participants have the opportunity to bring and analyse their own data or use publicly available datasets.

By the end of the course participants should:

  1. Be familiar with different workflows involved in the analysis of large-scale multi-omics studies.
  2. Understand how to generate taxonomic, functional and strain profiles from metagenomic and metatranscriptomic sequencing data.
  3. Be familiar with applying a multivariate statistical framework to generate hypotheses and account for confounding covariates.
  4. Be able to use exploratory data visualizations techniques and visualize results from the statistical analysis using R.

This is a ‘LIVE COURSE’ – the instructor will be delivering lectures and coaching attendees through the accompanying computer practical’s via video link, a good internet connection is essential.

TIME ZONE – GMT – however all sessions will be recorded and made available allowing attendees from different time zones to follow a day behind with an additional 1/2 days support after the official course finish date (please email oliverhooker@prstatistics.com for full details or to discuss how we can accommodate you).
