Computational Metagenomics on the Species Level

After Dr. Can’s (METU, Ankara – Turkey) talk, our next guest was from Robert Koch Institute, Berlin, Germany. Dr. Bernhard Y Renard heads the bioinformatics research group at Robert Koch Institute, the German national institute for infectious disease in Berlin, Germany and is an adjunct senior lecturer (Privatdozent) at the department of mathematics and computer science at Freie Universität Berlin.

Dr. Renard’s talk was on computational metagenomics on the species level. You can find the recording of the webinar here on our community page and here on youtube.

My highlight from this presentation is that metagenomics has a whole new set of constraints with data analysis. I could not capture a saying from this one 🙂 but I can say that I am far more interested in computational metagenomics than ever before.

Dr. Renard mentioned to be very happy to meet us and appreciated the project. Participants were also eager to have the slides 🙂

Hope to see Dr. Renard as a guest again in the future!
