Biostatistics & Bioinformatics for Modelling the Microbiome

Gaining more utility and clinical insights from microbiome data is a clear focus within the microbiome research community – and this requires the application of appropriate biostatistical methods and the development of new bioinformatic tools for analyzing large microbiome datasets. This inaugural congress will bring together leaders from across academia and industry to discuss biostatistical methods and cutting-edge bioinformatic tools for advancing microbiome research and product commercialization. Attendees will learn about biostatistical and bioinformatic challenges specific to the microbiome field, and will hear from microbiome-focused research groups about a wide array of new bioinformatics software, workflows, and applications for analysing metagenomic data.
