You can watch the live talks from Beatles and Bioinformatics! on the YouTube channel called pathogenomics.
Also, the CGR (Center for Genomic Research) Course in Metagenomics (held on 28th & 29th November 2013 in Liverpool) will cover 16S ribosonal RNA analysis and so-called OTUs (Operational Taxonomic Unit). The agenda is available too.
