Online course on Metabarcoding

Its that time time of the year! In collaboration the the University of Guelph Open Ed department we are running another iteration of the distance education course on Metabarcoding taught by myself.
There are still spots available and the course will be running September 25 to October 20, 2017

This 4-week, web-based course provides an overview of the state of current technology and the various platforms used. The course consists of a series of online lectures and research exercises introducing different aspects of metabarcoding and environmental DNA research. I will also touch on the suite of bioinformatics tools available for sequence analysis and data interpretation.

We tried to cover as much as possible given the online format and the limited time participants usually have available to do such training. I am quite proud of it and feedback on last year's course was quite positive. The course is also designed with limited time resources of participants in mind. It usually takes an average of  four hours per week to go through the content and the materials. 

If you are interested there is still time to join. Sign up is here.
