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.


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 Population and Community Ecology/Ecosystem Sciences Clusters (award DEB 1749544), 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:
