HCC QIIME Workshop

The Holland Computing Center is proud to host a QIIME workshop at the NIC Food Innovation Center (room 277) on Thursday, October 20th. QIIME is one of the most prominent computational tools to perform the taxonomic profiling of microbial communities, using 16S rRNA marker-gene sequencing data. Workshop participants will:

  • Get a hands-on introduction to the Unix Shell (no prior Unix/Linux experience required!)
  • Learn how to use HCC compute clusters, freeing workstations and laptops for more immediate tasks and transfer data at high speed via a simple web interface
  • Learn how to run QIIME on the HCC compute clusters to process 16S rRNA next-generation sequencing (NGS) data (Sequencing platform: Illumina)

Register now for this full-day workshop.
Participants will need to bring a laptop and sign up for an HCC account prior to the event.
Registration is limited.
Cost: $15 (Lunch is provided with registration.)
Location: NIC Food Innovation Center room 277 - 1901 N. 21st St., Lincoln, 68588
