ESA 2014 – Workshop materials posted

Thanks to everyone for coming out to our workshop at the ESA 2014 annual meeting, entitled “Environmental sequencing approaches and computational tools for ecologists”. We had a great group of participants who helped facilitate some very productive discussions!

Our workshop materials have now been posted online:

  • QIIME demonstration and discussion (PDF slides – Dorota Porazinska and Zhenjiang Xu, University of Colorado, Boulder) Topics covered:
    • Demonstration with default vs. modified parameters in software workflows (covering the different options possible, and how to modify them for different datasets and questions)
    • Explanation of how files are generated, what the software outputs look like, and how users can make use of the different files
    • Discussion will include data visualization tools for data analysis and exploration
