Genomics of Microbes and Microbiomes Overview15 Dec 2016
Listed below is a brief overview of the talk and the papers referenced throughout the talk.
Topic 1 Bacterial Diversity Studies with 16S rRNA Sequencing
Important issues to consider in experiment:
- Study design?
- Sequencing platform?
- 16S rRNA region?
- Number of reads?
- Hidden technical issues?
- Analysis tools?
- Visualize data?
- Comparison to previous studies?
- What information will yield testable hypothesis?
- richeness - number of OTUs
- evenness - Shannon equitability index
- Shannon diversity index - accounts for both richness and evenness of OTUs

Topic 4 Sequencing Technology
Illumina MiSeq dominates, but PacBio gives long reads for reference genomes. There may be talk of MinION from Oxford Nanopore in teh future for long read sequencing.
