An overview of the basics of Illumina next generation sequencing will be presented along with a basic hands-on QC analysis of a dataset. A brief introduction to QIIME, a widely used 16S microbiome sequence analysis tool will be given. Attendees may want to install one or both the software free packages listed below if they want to try some hands-on bioinformatics analysis. This is all to get TriDIYBio members more up to speed for the microbiome analysis of various Mudwatts that we are planning.


Versions are available for major OS (Mac, Linux, Windows)

We may get a little ways into a QIIME tutorial, depending on time:

If not once QIIME is installed any user should be able to run the tutorial on their own time.
