Centre for Bioscience and Diagnostics
This course is part of the courses for professionals organized by Centre for Bioscience and Diagnostics (CBD). Our discipline, life science and health, is always changing and that is what makes it so inspiring. The CBD develops and runs a broad-based portfolio of training courses that take place at the University of Applied Sciences Leiden
During this course you will learn:
- the basic principles and concepts needed to understand the backgrounds of metagenomics research;
- the basic workflow of metagenomics research;
- how to take samples and isolate DNA for metagenomics research and what the pitfalls are like;
- how to analyze 16S and metagenome data with free accessible tools available online;
- how to interpret the results and present the data.
This two day course is taught in English and has a theory and practice part.
The next workshop Metagenomics starts on 31st May 2021.
The following topics are covered during this first day: introduction to metagenomics, how to take and analyze samples, library prep strategies for composition analysis and functional analysis. During the afternoon session, there are practical exercises.
On the second day, common pitfalls will be discussed as well as data interpretation from 16S rRNA gene targeted profiling. There is a practical session in the afternoon.

Floyd Wittink and Hilda van Mourik will share their knowledge during this course, also some quest lecturers from the workfield.
Floyd Wittink is a molecular biologist with affinity for computers, and this led him into the field of bio-informatics. At CBD, he teaches (among other things) next-gen sequencing courses. He did his PhD in developmental biology at the Radboud University Nijmegen, where he noticed the importance of the right balance between education and research. Before coming to Hogeschool Leiden, Floyd worked in a lab environment for many years, for example setting up a microarray lab at Utrecht University and leading a microarray facility at the University of Amsterdam.
“Teaching post-bachelor professionals is a gift. They bring their own expertise and specific questions.”
Hilda van Mourik
At Centrum Bioscience en Diagnostiek a tailor-made pogramme is also a possibility. The power of this is that we can focus directly to the unique work situation and training needs of the organisation. You can choose for an incompany training (for a group of employees) or a individual training.
