BCC2020 is online, global, and affordable. The meeting and training are now done, and the CoFest is under way.

The 2020 Bioinformatics Community Conference brings together the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) and the Galaxy Community Conference into a single event featuring training, a meeting, and a CollaborationFest. Events run from July 17 through July 25, and is held in both the eastern and western hemispheres.

Functional microbiome analysis which estimates the functional groups expressed by microbial community, enables researchers to look beyond taxonomic composition and correlation with the condition under study. The tutorial will introduce attendees to using microbial community RNASeq data analysis using ASaiM metatranscriptomics workflow (https://training.galaxyproject.org/training-material/topics/metagenomics/tutorials/metatranscriptomics-short/tutorial.html).

We will also present metaproteomics workflows (https://training.galaxyproject.org/training-material/topics/proteomics/tutorials/metaproteomics/tutorial.html) for characterizing microbial proteins using mass spectrometry data. Attendees will be able to run workflows on small test datasets. Lastly, workshop trainers will update attendees on the latest developments in Galaxy tools and workflows for functional microbiome and multi-omics analysis.
