This 4-hour tutorial will first spend time discussing important considerations for the design of your study and the collection of your samples. It will also introduce you to the data processing and analysis methods that are used in 16S microbiome analysis. We will cover topics such as data quality control, diversity indices, and calling differentially abundant microflora. We will provide hands-on experience that will allow you to go back to your lab and work with your own data.
