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.


This year's course will be August 6-12, 2017 at the Kellogg Biological Station:


2017 schedule


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.
