Martin Hartmann will present a half-day tutorial devoted to analysis of microbial community sequence data. This lecture-style lesson will cover quality control, OTU clustering, and taxonomic classification of amplicon reads with substantial time for questions and discussion. No prior experience is required.

The MG-RAST team will present a half-day tutorial on MG-RAST, a web-based analysis and integration platform for metagenomic data with over 80,000 data sets (http://metagenomics.anl.gov). This tutorial will briefly introduce the MG-RAST pipeline and the web interface and focus on using the MG-RAST API for analysis. The majority of the tutorial will focus on using R (a statistical language) to analyze metagenomic data after processing with MG-RAST.
