Metagenomics Workshop – Calgary, Alberta

Tareq has just returned from a Genome-centric Metagenomics Workshop hosted by the University of Calgary entitled From community DNA to provisional whole genomes of microbial populations. The workshop consisted of two sessions, with the first part (June 20-22, 2018) with a hands-on approach to generate and prep metagenomic libraries, and the following session (June 25-29, 2018) allowed participants to process the raw dataset into meaningful results.

The workshop was developed by the University of Calgary Energy Bioengineering and Geomicrobiology Research Group.
