I have heard lots of good things about this course:
Explorations in Data Analyses for Metagenomic Advances in Microbial Ecology (EDAMAME) Workshop
EDAMAME is an intensive, hands-on course in microbial metagenome analyses, covering workflows from raw sequence analysis through to multivariate statistics and ecological interpretation.
Next year’s course will be June 24-30, 2018 at the Kellogg Biological Station. We are accepting applications now through Februry 2, 2018!
The learning goals for the EDAMAME course are to:
Increase computing literacy
Develop proficiency in cloud computing
Analyze microbial amplicon sequences
Analyze microbial shotgun metagenome sequences
Apply ecological statistics to analyze and interpret microbial sequencing data
Access resources provided by public sequence databases
