About This Course

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.
Intended Audiences
Academics, post-graduate students and researchers working on projects related to microbial community studies, who want to learn computational approaches for the analysis of high-dimensional sequencing data.
Course Details

Last Up-Dated – N/A

Duration – Approx. 21 hours

ECT’s – Equal to 2 ECT’s

Language – English

Teaching Format

The course will be held virtually and consists of a mixture of theoretical and practical sessions. Each concept and tool will be first described and explained, followed by a lab session with hands-on experience of applying the tool to provided data sets. At the end of each day there will be additional time for questions. Participants are welcome to bring their own data for the last day.

 
Assumed quantitative knowledge

Attendees are assumed to have a basic understanding of microbial community studies. The course will not cover data generation aspects (sample collection, library preparation etc) but focus on how to analyse sequencing data starting from raw read files.

Assumed computer background

Familiarity with the command line interface (bash/shell) and R is an advantage. We will offer short introductory labs for both to make the course more accessible to a wider audience. We also encourage attendees to get familiar with zoom prior to the course.

Equipment and software requirements

A laptop computer with a working version of R or RStudio is required. R and RStudio are both available as free and open source software for PCs, Macs, and Linux computers. R may be downloaded by following the links here https://www.r-project.org/. RStudio may be downloaded by following the links here: https://www.rstudio.com/.

All the R packages that we will use in this course will be possible to download and install during the workshop itself as and when they are needed, and a full list of required packages will be made available to all attendees prior to the course.

A working webcam is desirable for enhanced interactivity during the live sessions, we encourage attendees to keep their cameras on during live zoom sessions.

Although not strictly required, using a large monitor or preferably even a second monitor will improve he learning experience
