Informatics Lectures & Precision Medicine Conference

JANUARY 17 - MAY 2, 2017
Lectures on Informatics: An Introduction to Microbial Community Sequencing and Analysis

Time: Tuesdays from 3:00-4:30pm
Location: LSUHSC Human Development Center, Room 133 or remotely (past & present lectures)
Details: This lecture series will provide an introduction to the sequencing and analysis of microbial communities. We will introduce various sequencing approaches to studying the microbiota in humans, model organisms, and environmental samples with an emphasis on 16S rDNA sequencing. We will cover common sequencing file formats and approaches to performing primary and secondary analysis on them with a focus on the Illumina MiSeq platform. A research data set will be used to provide hands on exercises applying the techniques covered in lectures. We will also discuss approaches to broader assessments of the metagenomics of microbial communities. More info...
