This is an archive containing training materials for the H3ABioNet course: “Computational Metagenomics Workshop University of Mauritius 1st Dec – 5th Dec 2014”.

Brief description of the course:

The Computational Metagenomics Workshop at the University of Mauritius will provide a week-long series of training seminars, practical demonstrations, hands-on tutorials and research talks on the use of software tools to analyze and interpret metagenomics data. The scope is quite broad and offers an overview of cutting-edge fundamental theory and practical applications of metagenomics.

This workshop is aimed primarily at biologists but also at computational scientists who intend to use public metagenomics data in their research or start new projects in the field of metagenomics.
