Bacterial metagenomics on the JHU campus: analyzing the data, part II

What do you do after you've used DNA sequencing to identify the bacteria, viruses, or other organisms in the environment?

What's the next step?

This four part video series covers those next steps. In this part, we learn that a surprisingly large portion of bioinformatics, or any type of informatics is concerned with fixing data entry errors and spelling mistakes.

The parts of this series are:

I. Downloading the data from iFinch and preparing it for analysis. (this is the video below) (We split the data from one column into three).

II. Cleaning up the data

III. Counting all the bacteria

IV. Counting the bacteria by biome

Part II. Pivot tables from Sandra Porter on Vimeo.
