Event Details

Registration is required to join this event. If you have not registered, please do so now.

The QIIME platform, including QIIME 1 and QIIME 2, has been extensively applied in microbiome research, repeatedly making analyses that were challenging or impossible into routine tasks. While QIIME began as a marker gene (e.g., 16S, ITS, …) analysis platform, microbiome research is transitioning toward multi-omics. With funding from NCI’s Informatics Technology for Cancer Research program, QIIME 2 is transitioning to become a microbiome multi-omics analysis platform. In this talk I will introduce QIIME 2, including our current work on expanding beyond marker gene analysis. I will also discuss QIIME 2’s retrospective data provenance tracking system, and how it can help you to get help with your bioinformatics analyses and ensure that your work is reproducible. I will describe the ways that QIIME 2 can be used, including through the Galaxy graphical user interface, a command line interface, or a Python 3 API. Full support for using QIIME 2 through these different interface types ensures that using QIIME 2 will be accessible and convenient for you, regardless of your computational background. Finally, I’ll present on QIIME 2’s extensive educational and technical support resources so you can start learning QIIME 2 as quickly as possible.
