Resumen (la conferencia será en castellano):

Next generation sequencing technologies have opened up an unprecedented opportunity for microbiology by enabling the culture-independent genetic study of complex microbial communities, which were so far largely unknown. The analysis of metagenomic data is challenging, since a sample may contain a mixture of many different microbial species, whose genome has not necessarily been sequenced beforehand. In this talk, we discuss both composition-based and alignment-based methods for the classification of sequence reads, and present recent results on the assignment of ambiguous sequence reads to microbial species at the best possible taxonomic rank.
