Event description

Description

The British Ecological Society's Microbial Ecology Special Interest Group will be holding a "pick and mix" event at the University of Leeds including:


Monday 2nd September - Early Career Event

Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th - "Microbial Ecology: From Lab to Field and Back Again" Symposium

Thursday 5th and Friday 6th - Bioinformatics Workshop: Using DADA2 and phyloseq in R for amplicon sequence data


Early Career Event

This day will include talks on career pathways and sources of funding for postdocs, grant writing tips, a CV workshop, and a publication workshop. It is primairly aimed at Masters and PhD students, but any one is welcome! Places limited to 20 so book early to avoid disappointment!


"Microbial Ecology: From Lab to Field and Back Again" Symposium

The complex interactions between microbiomes and host traits are best understood through both field (i.e. real world) and experimental (i.e. tightly controlled) set ups. This meeting will explore how field studies and experimental lab models enable us to gain an understanding of the environment-microbiome-host axis across plants, animals and humans. We welcome contributions from attendees about their research, including posters, flash talks (5 minutes) and full talks (15 minutes). We are also excited to welcome the following keynote speakers:

Dr Sarah Knowles, University of Oxford

Dr Damian Rivett, Manchester Metropolitan University

Dr Thuy Do, University of Leeds

Dr Suzanne Ford, Univerity of Oxford


To submit a talk or poster abstract, please complete the following form: https://forms.gle/mYCGHLBHRXyyvHUHA

Deadline for submissions: Monday 12th August at 6pm

Notification: Thursday 15th August


Bioinformatics Workshop: Using DADA2 and phyloseq in R for amplicon sequence data

This two day workshop will guide you through the R-based pipelines for analysing 16S and/or ITS rRNA amplicon sequence data. This will include the use of DADA2 for filtering and trimming your raw seqeunce data into amplicon sequence variants, and analysing those data using packages such as phyloseq and vegan. Places limited to 20 so book early to avoid disappointment!


If you have any queries, please contact Rachael on microbial@britishecologicalsociety.org or rachael.antwis@gmail.com.


Ticket sales end on Thursday 22nd August at 6pm. Please be aware that in requesting a refund, you will be reimbursed the event ticket price, subject to our refund policy, but unfortunately you will not be reimbursed the Eventbrite fee.
