A Comprehensive Workflow for Soil Metagenomics Analysis Using Shotgun Sequencing

GenomeWebinar

Scientist, R&D Department, Illumina

This webinar will discuss a comprehensive end-to-end workflow for soil metagenomic shotgun sequencing that offers an unbiased alternative to amplicon-based approaches to assess the composition of culture-free microbial communities and predict functional profiles. 

The soil microbiome represents a highly diverse and complex microbial community that contributes to many aspects of human, animal and environmental health. Due to the biodiversity of soil microbial communities and the presence of various PCR and library preparation inhibitors, such as humic substances, unbiased extraction of high-quality DNA for NGS has been challenging for soil metagenomic studies.

This webinar will focus on the following topics:

  • Utility of shotgun sequencing using culture-free soil samples
  • Validated methodologies for gDNA extraction, library preparation, and sequencing
  • User-friendly analytical pipeline for taxonomic classification, alpha-diversity measurements, hierarchical clustering, and functional potential

Due to the location of our speaker, this webinar will be pre-recorded. You may submit questions in advance of the webinar via the registration page.
