Metagenomics is a discipline that enables the genomic study of uncultured microorganisms
Before diving into this topic, we recommend you to have a look at:
|Lesson||Slides||Hands-on||Input dataset||Workflows||Galaxy tour|
|Introduction to metagenomics||slides|
|16S Microbial Analysis with Mothur||tutorial Toggle Dropdown||zenodo_link||workflow||interactive_tour|
|Analyses of metagenomics data - The global picture||tutorial Toggle Dropdown||zenodo_link||workflow||interactive_tour|
You can use a public Galaxy instance which has been tested for the availability of the used tools. They are listed along with the tutorials above.
You can also use the following Docker image for these tutorials:
docker run -d -p 8080:80 quay.io/galaxy/metagenomics-training
It will launch a flavored Galaxy instance available on http://localhost:8080.
