Educational resources for the analysis of microbial sequence data using ARB

The materials available below were designed for a 2-day workshop entitled “Analysis of microbial sequence data using ARB.” The materials include a course syllabus, lectures, and a set of tutorials with a practice dataset used during the course. The materials focus on the use of the software programs Sequencher, a program for viewing and edit raw sequence data and ARB, a program for sequence data management, alignments and phylogenetic analyses. We have posted the materials on this site for the following audiences:

The materials below are not intended for individuals with no background in microbial nucleotide sequence data analysis or with the software program ARB. Comprehensive training workshops on ARB for novice users or for those seeking explanations of advanced features in ARB are available through the software developers, Ribocon.

It is generally recommended that the tutorials be completed in order, but completion of tutorial 1 is not necessary before beginning the other ARB tutorials. It is also recommended that you complete tutorials 2-5 and gain a working knowledge of ARB before attempting the “Assignment in ARB.“ Please feel free to contact Amy Apprill if you have any questions about the posted materials.
