Introduction to Microbial Diversity

This video provides a practical demonstration on how to work with 16S rRNA pyrosequencing datasets using the RDP pipeline discussed in Part II. In this video Jennifer Mobberley of the University of Florida guides you through the critical steps to analyze and assess the diversity of a hypothetical microbial community.

Learning Objective: By the end of this video exercise a student will have had hands on experience using the RDP pyrosequencing pipeline to evaluate and analyze a 16S rRNA gene data set.
