Sequencing of amplicons of phylogenetic marker genes currently comprises the dominant methodology for analyzing microbial diversity in such habitats, owing to its high-resolution ability and its capacity to capture most of the existing diversity as opposed to methodologies of the past era. During the workshop, the students will be introduced to past and current methodologies for studying environmental microbial diversity, building the case around the need for high throughput sequencing of phylogenetic marker gene amplicons (currently, commonly referred as “metabarcoding” methodology) in such studies. A thorough description of all necessary steps for designing and performing microbial diversity analysis...
