Tania attended the Computational Microbial Ecology Workshop in Romulus, Michigan on August 26-28, 2013. The workshop aimed to familiarize participants with mothur, an open-source software for the bioinformatics needs of the microbial ecology community. The workshop was a mix of lectures, discussions, and hands-on use of mothur with real sequence data. The workshop was organized by Dr. Pat Schloss and his team from the University of Michigan, who are also the developers of the mothur software.
