The Harvard University Center for AIDS Research, in collaboration with the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard, and the Clinical and Translational Epidemiology Unit at MGH, will be sponsoring a week-long workshop focused exclusively on computational approaches to metagenomic analysis. This intensive, hands-on course will feature morning and afternoon sessions taught by expert faculty and technical assistants from the Broad Institute, the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, MIT, and Washington University, St. Louis. All participants will acquire skills in fundamental computational methods, study design, data interpretation, and overall literacy in bioinformatic analysis useful for the analysis of amplicon-based and metagenomic data sets. This is a metagenomics workshop and not a general bioinformatics workshop; no previous experience is required.
