Metagenome Analysis Workshop March 3-6
The Institute for Genome Sciences Metagenome Analysis Workshop will hold March 3rd - 6th, 2015. This workshop will provide attendees with in-depth training on analysis of bacterial community sequence data, both whole metgenome shotgun and 16S. Tools for community profiling, gene clustering, and annotation will be explored.
IHMC 2015 from Mar. 31 to Apr. 2
Poster and Booth at ASM 2014
HMP DACC Releases New Collection of Data
Researchers with the Data Analysis and Coordination Center (DACC) for the NIH Human Microbiome Project (HMP) are releasing a significant amount of new sequence data generated by the HMP sequencing centers and Demonstration Projects. This release includes whole metagenome sequencing reads from ~800 healthy human cohort samples (beyond the 764 previously released), both raw and trimmed 16S reads from ~5,000 healthy human cohort samples (beyond the 5,034 previously released), and associated metadata.
New Datasets available: Phase II and Demo 16S and WGS
The DACC is pleased to announce the release of Phase II and demo 16S and WGS datasets to the website. The datasets are available via the HMP Data Browser on the following pages: HMIWGS, HMR16S and HM16STR. Also, the HMP Data Browser is currently being reorganized to make the new datasets more apparent and easier to navigate.
NCI Symposium: Inflammation, Microbiota, and Cancer to be held in Bethesda, MD September 19-20
The Center for Cancer Research at the National Cancer Institute is hosting a two-day national symposium entitled Inflammation, Microbiota, and Cancer. This two-day national symposium addresses recent advances in the field.
Human Microbiome Science: Vision for the Future conference to be held in Bethesda, MD July 24-26
Research into the human microbiome and its relationship to human health and disease is expanding at a phenomenal rate. The time is right to assess the state of the science across this diverse field of many disciplines. This meeting has been organized to provide an overview of cutting-edge work in NIH-supported microbiome research and to identify both the obstacles to and opportunities for progress in this emerging area of biomedical research.
Human Microbiome Consortium Virtual Meeting: Approaches in Microbiome Assembly
This is a recording of the HMP webinar presentation held on 05/02/2013. The Webinar recording will familiarize you with the issues critical to producing high quality assemblies and review current state of the art software. We will also present a step-by-step demonstration showing users how to perform an assembly using a procedure similar to what was used for the HMP healthy human subjects study.
Booth at ASM 2013 (#639)
The Institute for Genome Sciences will host a booth at ASM 2013 (holding May 18 - 21). Visit us at Booth #639 to learn more about the HMP DACC and other projects and services offered at the institute.
HMP-DACC hosts free webinar: Approaches in Microbiome Assembly
New Walkthroughs Available
The DACC is pleased to announce the addition of two new walkthroughs for the Metagenomic Assembly and Bowtie Aligner pipelines. Walkthroughs are step-by-step tutorials taking users through typical HMP analysis paths, complete with sample datasets, details steps, screenshots and example output.
Owen White and Dirk Gevers discuss the HMP on Wisconsin Public Radio
(this is a previously recorded program, originally aired on 6/20/12)Our bodies carry enough microbes to outnumber our human cells by 10 to 1. This hour, Kathleen Dunn is joined by two researchers from the Human Microbiome Project, a research collaboration that is attempting to map, for the first time, the microbes that live in and on the human body. http://hmpdacc.org/ Guests:- Owen R. White, Professor, Epidemiology and Public Health, and Associate Director, Institute for Genome Sciences, University of Maryland School of Medicine. - Dirk Gevers, Group Leader, Microbial Systems & Communities, The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.
