Galaxy Admin Training: Advanced Topics

November 8-11, University of Utah Campus

The three day advanced session will build on topics covered in the basics section. This session both extends those topics, such as tool definition, and adds new ones, such as working with compute clusters and heterogeneous resources.

University of Utah Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC)

We will use compute resources from the University of Utah Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC) for cluster access during the advanced session.


Please review the prerequisites carefully before registering. If you arrive without meeting the prerequisites then the workshop will be a frustrating experience.

1. All prerequisites for the Basic Topics workshop

You need to have a solid grasp of the Linux command line, a text editor, and Linux package management.

2. Understanding of material covered in the Basic Topics workshop

You can get this by

  1. Attending the Basic Topics Workshop, or

  2. Having actual experience with setting up and running your own Galaxy server.


The Advanced Session starts at 9:00am on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning. Checkin and coffee opens at 8:30am. The sessions break for lunch and dinner (as well as morning and afternoon breaks). All 3 nights wrap up around 8:30pm.

A complete schedule and topics list (with resource links) are available on the workshop's GitHub page.

* We are exploring combining the final dinner and the open questions sessions into a single informal and pizza-fueled open discussion session.


Commanders House

The advanced session will be held at the Commanders House on the University of Utah campus. This is a short walk from the University Guest House, where participants are staying.

USTAR Center for Genetic Discovery (UCGD)

We would like to thank the USTAR Center for Genetic Discovery (UCGD) for a grant to book this great venue for the advanced workshop.
