ML4Microbiome Training School 2021

ML4Microbiome is glad to announce the Training School 2021 edition on Machine Learning approaches & methods for the analysis of microbiome data.

The Training School (TS) will take place “live” on the 27th and 28th of September and the 4th, 7th and 8th of October.

We have a challenge planned for the week 11-15th of October where gained knowledge can be applied on a different dataset, but only if enough people sign up for this part of the course.


The Programme is available  here


Lectures and practicals will be recorded and made available through the ML4Microbiome YouTube channel to allow people to watch them also at a later point.

The training material for the hands-on part will be made available to registered people before the school starts. Nevertheless, we recommend following the “live” event as questions can be asked during or after the lectures.

We will make use of the Zoom or Teams platform for communication and access to the material and practicals will only require a web browser. The interface is based on Jupyterhub/Jupyterlab and is tested with Chrome and Firefox. Edge and Safari may work but are untested. All analysis is done remotely in the cloud so no need to install the software.



Signing up for the Training School can be done here also if you are not planning on following the lectures live. Registration is free and open to ML4Microbiome members and non-ML4Microbiome members.
