Instructor: Dave Clements

Location
Room B30A, Mann library

Registration

This workshop is now full. However, you can still get on the waiting list.

Registration is free and open to any member of the Boyce Thompson Institute and the Cornell research community. Space is available on a first-come, first served basis.

Audience

Are you a life scientist who needs to do complex analysis on large datasets?

Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for data intensive life science research that enables non-bioinformaticians to create, run, tune, and share their own bioinformatic analyses.

Most of the workshop will be hands-on and teach participants how to integrate data, and perform simple and complex analysis within Galaxy. It will also cover data visualization and visual analytics, and how to share and reuse your bioinformatic analyses, all from within Galaxy.

No programming or Linux command line experience is required.

Agenda

The agenda below is tentative and should be considered a work in progress.
