Metatranscriptomics analysis using microbiome RNA-seq data in Galaxy

Metatranscriptomics analysis examines how the microbiome responds to the environment by studying the taxonomic composition and functional analysis of genes expressed by the microbiome, using microbial community RNASeq data and subsequent metatranscriptomics workflows. This workshop will introduce researchers to the basic concepts and tools from the ASaiM-MT workflow. ASaiM-MT provides a curated collection of tools to explore and visualize taxonomic and functional information from metatranscriptomic sequences. The workshop trainers will update attendees on the latest developments in Galaxy tools and workflows for functional microbiome and multi-omics analysis.




  • Choose the best approach to analyze metatranscriptomics data
  • Understand the functional microbiome characterization using metatranscriptomic results
  • Understand where metatranscriptomics fits in ‘multi-omic’ analysis of microbiomes
  • Visualize a community structure
