The objectives of the workshop were to :
- Give the participants a clear understanding of how the current metagenomics analysis pipeline works and what the results will be used for,
- Ensure the participants know of pitfalls in interpreting the metagenomics results,
- Try to establish a uniform way of interpreting the metagenomics results (eg. thresholds, filters and rules of thumb), and
- Determine what else needs to be done regarding the metagenomics analysis based on partners' requests.
