Session 8: Functional profiles

This eighth session deals with some approaches to make (semi-)quantitative profiles of the molecular functions found in metagenomes and how they can be compared across samples:

  • Look back at:

    • mapping

    • annotation

  • Gene abundance measures - functional profile calculation

    • reads per gene / reads per function

    • reads per kilobase

    • copies per million

    • average depth of coverage

  • Working with functional profiles

The recording is available on the University of Amsterdam’s media site. You can find the slides here: slides session 8.
