Workshop RCAM 2017 -

09/10/2017 - 10/10/2017
Type d'événement ou fait marquant: 


This workshop aims at promoting discussions and collaborations between biologists (modelers),  computer scientists and applied-mathematicians involved in metagenomics and/or metatranscriptomics studies, either in the bioinformatics or statistical aspects of such analysis.

Metagenomics  studies  refer   to  analyses  based  on high-throughput sequencing  of environmental samples  and microbial ecosystems. Both marker-gene (16S, 18S, ITS,  ...)  and whole-genome strategies will be adressed to  cover a wide  array of question ranging  from quantifying the  microbial  diversity in  order  to  find  structuring factors to assessing the functional role of microbial communities.

The workshop will provide  an overview of the state-of-the-art methods currently used in metaomics including comparative metagenomics and metatranscriptomics.  At the  other end  of the  spectrum, case-studies with a strong methodological component will illustrate how and when these methods are useful and how they produce new biological knowledge. This includes studies that investigate the shortcomings of mature or novel methods (e.g. for clustering, inference of co-occurrence networks, detection of certain types of interaction between taxa, etc) in real life settings.



The program of this workshop will consist mainly of presentations of refereed papers (30 minutes) and  invited talks (50 minutes). 

Note that this workshop focuses mainly on methodological aspects of metagenomics and is not dedicated to bioanalyse result presentations.
