A workshop on microbiome data analysis in Bioconductor

Bioconductor provides significant resources for microbiome data acquisition, analysis, and visualization. This workshop introduces the common analyses of differential abundance and ordination using the phyloseq, edgeR, and DESeq2. For data it utilizes the curatedMetagenomicData package, a resource providing uniformly processed taxonomic and metabolic functional profiles for more than 6,000 whole metagenome shotgun sequencing samples from 26 publicly available studies, including the Human Microbiome Project, along with curated participant data. At the end of this workshop, users will be able to access publicly available metagenomic data and to perform differential abundance tests, visualization and multivariate statistical analyses of these and other data in R/Bioconductor.
