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.
All applicants have been notified. We are working hard to finalized our 2018 schedule.



EDAMAME is supported by the National Institutes of Health (1R25GM115335-01), the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (Award 2016-68003-24604), the National Science Foundation Dimensions of Biodiversity program (awards DEB 1737758 and DEB 1737765), and Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of Biological and Environmental Research under Award Number DE-SC0018420.

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
