SUMMER SCHOOL - Module 4

 

 

Module 4 /  Microbial Genomics & Metagenomics Workshop

Dates: June 20th – June24th 2022

Organizer: M. Pilar Francino (francino_pil@gva.es)
         

The workshop is addressed to students and professionals of biology, biomedical research, the health sciences and related fields who are interested in learning and sharing concepts, tools and research results in genomics, metagenomics and the human microbiome. The workshop will train participants in state-of-the-art analytical methods in this area, by means of theoretical lectures and seminars as well as practical hands-on exercises, in a combination of in person and online live sessions in constant interaction with the instructors. Several sessions will be devoted to training in the use of the Integrated Microbial Genomes system (IMG), a database and analysis platform developed at the U.S. DOE Joint Genome Institute (Berkeley, California) for comprehensive studies of genomes and metagenomes. The IMG system will be presented by Dr. Natalia Ivanova and Dr. Rheka Seshadri from the JGI's Microbial Genomics & Metagenomics Scientific Program, the group responsible for IMG development.
