E9th BAME Workshop on Computational Microbial Ecogenomics
12 - 26 October 2024
General Chairs
Lois Maingen

Microbial Ecology is undergoing rapid evolution and dramatic progress thanks to the combined advances of next-generation DNA sequencing technologies and computational approaches for data analysis and visualization. As a result, microbial ecogenomics has become an essential part of investigations of marine or terrestrial habitats or host-microbe interactions. The aim of the workshop on Emerging Bioinformatics Approaches for Microbial Ecogenomics is to bring together researchers who generate complex 'omics datasets to investigate biological, ecological and evolutionnary questions with researchers who develop new concepts and computational methods to analyze such datasets.

The workshop will include lectures on new methods and their applications to real-world datasets and tutorials for hands-on experience.


The workshop will focus on various state-of-the-art data analysis practices targeting genome-resolved metagenomics, including recovery of population genomes from metagenomes, analysis of micro-diversity through single-nucleotide variants, strain deconvolution, comparative genomics, application of network theory to complex metagenomic data, and data visualization.
