Eric Franzosa, Ph.D., Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
"New and improved methods for computational profiling of metagenomes"

Abstract: Shotgun metagenomic sequencing data house rich descriptions of microbial community structure and function. However, extracting such descriptions from raw sequences depends critically on the development of accurate and efficient bioinformatics algorithms. In this talk, I will present our recent contributions to two key strategies for computational metagenome profiling-reference-based mapping and annotation of metagenomic assemblies-along with associated applications in large, publically available metagenome collections.

The Duke Microbiome Center organizes a monthly seminar series featuring diverse researchers at the cutting edges of the microbiome field. The DMC Seminar Series is largely run by graduate students, postdocs, and fellows in DMC labs, and provides DMC trainees opportunities to build their networks and meet leaders in the field. All seminars are at 12PM noon on the first Wednesdays of the month.
