International Course in Microbial Ecology: Hands-on training in Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic metagenomics (ICME10)

The 10th edition of the INTERNATIONAL COURSE IN MICROBIAL ECOLOGY -ICME will be held at the University of Milano-Bicocca from Monday 6th to Friday 10th May 2019.  As in its tradition the ICME10 is a PRACTICAL COURSE  addressed to PhD students and post doc from all over the world interested in microbial ecology and metagenomic analysis.
The ICME10 aims at making participants understand every step of metagenomic analysis. Participants could then independently choose the right tools to answer their specific scientific question. They will be introduced to analytical approaches to investigate microbial genomes using high throughput sequencing data, to organize data in the ecological framework and to bioinformatic pipelines to personalize the analyses.
The topics of the course are:
– Metagenomic Sequencing, history, application and project planning
– Assembly, Binning and Annotation: theory and hands-on training
