Microbiome research frequently involves complex datasets, with a wide variety of organisms interacting at different spatial, temporal, and taxonomic scales.

On Sept. 25, 2017, the UGA Institute of Bioinformatics bi-annual symposium will focus on the microbiome, a collective term for the multitude of microbial communities that form critical components of biological systems important in human health, agriculture, and the environment.

The event, titled Parsing the Microbiome, will feature several prominent experts who are developing or applying bioinformatics tools to understand these data and condense them into interpretable results. This one-day symposium will be useful to students, postdocs, and faculty interested in microbiome research and the current leading methods in this field.
