Members of the QIIME 2 team will teach a five-day online workshop on 
bioinformatics tools for microbiome science. This workshop will provide 
attendees with the foundation needed to begin using QIIME 2 to advance 
their own microbiome research projects. This will be accomplished by 
providing detailed in-depth “theory” lectures, hands-on interactive 
tutorials, guided discussion, and general question-and-answer sessions

The workshop will include lectures covering QIIME 2 usage and theory, 
and interactive work with QIIME 2 to perform microbiome analysis from 
raw sequence data through publication-quality statistics and 
visualizations. This workshop will also feature several opportunities 
for attendees to network with other researchers in the field, as well as 
with QIIME 2 developers and other experts.

Target Audience

This course is suitable for postgraduate wet-lab researchers and also 
bioinformaticians at graduate-level upwards within Latin America who are 
working with and/or generating their own microbiome datasets. Ideally 
your research or application is related to CABANA's challenge areas of 
sustainable food production, protection of biodiversity, or communicable 

Early-stage researchers, women and researchers from underrepresented 
ethnic groups are especially encouraged to apply for this workshop.

Please note this course will be taught in English.
