QIAGEN Bioinformatics Microbial Genomics hands-on workshop the 7th of Dec. from 9.30 – 16.00.
QIAGEN BIOINFORMATICS HANDS-ON WORKSHOP (7th of Dec from 9.30 to 16.00): From data to discovery with the QIAGEN Microbial Genomics Pro Suite.
The expanding field of metagenomics leaves researchers struggling to convert data generated with a wide range of open source tools into meaningful insights. The Microbial Genomics Pro Suite integrates a comprehensive set of tools for metagenomics into a scalable and user friendly platform.
Metagenomics applications are supported with workflows for the analysis of 16S-, 18S rRNA, or other amplicon data. Further included are workflows for whole metagenome assembly, and the functional analysis of metagenomic data. The recent launch of the CosmosID plugin completes the range of metagenomics applications. The plugin offers best in class taxonomic profiling and pathogen identification and can handle shotgun metagenomics data as input.
To convert microbiome data into biologically meaningful insights, all metagenomics applications are completed with workflows for the statistical analysis of differential abundance in the context of metadata. The user can explore changes in composition or function associated for instance with health or dysbiosis.
A package of workflows for the analysis of outbreaks based on isolate genome data extends the utility of the Microbial Genomics Pro Suite for researchers focusing on epidemiology, food safety and public health.
If you are interested, then join our workshop the 7th of Dec 2016 and learn more about the QIAGEN Microbial Genomics Pro Suite and try it out yourself. You will get a 6 weeks license for you to try out the software with your own data after the workshop
Deadline is 2nd of Dec at 16.00. There is a limit of 20 people for the workshop and registration will be on a first come, first served basis.
Hope to see you there.
