Working Group

More and more, we are becoming aware that there are a lot of researchers at McMaster who are dabbling in the microbiome. Some labs are hot-beds of microbial research, while others are using microbiome-related datasets as part of a more diverse toolbox to study their phenomenon of interest. The later means that there are often one or two researchers per-lab who are using these tools in semi-isolation.

The Microbiome Working Group is here to help! This is a weekly, drop-in, work/discussion hour that aims to bring microbiome researchers together –  independent of sample type, laboratory, or skill level. This isn’t a meeting and there are no presentations. This is about getting research and analysis done. Bring your laptop and use the presence of like-minded others as motivation. Test out your new analysis idea on your peers (before you spend months trying it out). Bring any obstacles you might have run into. Come once a month, or come every week.

Everyone is welcome, no need to sign up!
