International PhD and Postdoc One Health Summer School – Microbiomes in soil, plant, animal and human health
Target group: PhD students and Postdocs with backgrounds from the following fields: biology, environmental sciences, medicine, veterinary medicine, chemistry, geography and bioinformatics
Study credits: 2.0 ECTS
Registration: via website, deadline 17 May 2019

The first One Health-International PhD and Postdoc Summer School entitled `Microbiomes in soil, plant, animal and human health` consists of conceptual keynote lectures on soil, plant and gut microbiomes and their links to environmental health and hands-on activities on the following topics: microbiota analysis (amplicon data), microbiome analysis (shotgun metagenomic data), scientific visualization, advanced graphics, ordination analysis, network analysis in R.
The first two days of the programme includes conceptual keynote lectures (about soil, plant and gut microbiomes and their links to environmental health) and a poster session, where participants present and discuss their own research with the attendees. The other three days offer hands-on activities on the following topics: microbiota analysis (amplicon data), microbiome analysis (shotgun metagenomic data), scientific visualization and advanced graphics, ordination and network analysis. Two workshops are related to graphics and data analysis in R and the two other workshops cover command line based microbiota and microbiome analyses. It is important that participants are comfortable with some form of coding language. You do not have to be fluent in R but you need to be able to understand basic R code. The programme also offers social events on the topics of ‘Women in Science’ (Sunday) and ‘Microbes and Games’ (Wednesday).
