Welcome to the EDAMAME course website!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
EDAMAME is supported by the National Institutes of Health (1R25GM115335-01), the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (Award 2016-68003-24604), and by the BEACON Center for the Study of Evolution in Action. We thank the Michigan State Institute for Cyber-Enabled Research for providing organic carbon, Amazon for providing EC2 credits and MO BIO for providing t-shirts!
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
