A Primer for Microbiome Informatics

Ohio State University's Center of Microbiome Science hosts a webinar series



Ohio State University's Center of Microbiome Science hosts a webinar series on Microbiome Informatics.


Fellow MCC ( Microbiome Centers Consortium) member the Center of Microbiome Science has put together a webinar series for those interested the background and current range of bioinformatics as it applies to microbial research. This is a great way to get an introduction and overview of how we got to here and is useful to those both immersed in and considering entry to the field of microbiome 'omics. Webinars take place Tuesdays at 12-2 CST and the past editions can be viewed through the link below:
