Welcome!

Welcome to the official webpage for the NERC Population and Metagenomics Workshop 2014!

Use this site as a resource for all the information that you’re going to need leading up to and throughout the workshop. Follow the links above for information on the workshop timetable, teaching resources, faculty, attendee contacts, Dartington Hall and more!

Many students have asked if Linux is needed on their laptops for the workshop – IT IS NOT! We will be accessing a virtual machine through the Amazon Cloud Computing Service throughout the workshop.

Also make sure that you check out both our Twitter and Facebook pages!

Please note that we do not expect to have time to work on data sets generated by participants during the workshop. Our goal is to teach the SKILLS needed for analysis. However, once analysis of own data sets is complete participants are more than welcome to contact the faculty to discuss their results after the workshop.
