Come meet at one of the Galaxy Project hubs - Penn State University - for general discussions and training about Galaxy in an informal setting. These are open to anyone interested in data analysis, tools, computer infrastructure, programming - regardless if it is introductory or advanced.
What is Galaxy and why could it be interesting to me?
Galaxy is a web-based, open source, data integration and analysis platform for life science research. The core pillars of the application are:
Accessibility: enable bench scientists to create bioinformatics analyses
Reproducibility: facilitate computational methods to be completely easily reproducible
Transparency: enable easy sharing and publishing of research data and analyses
A sample instance of the application that is free to use is available at usegalaxy.org. Although focused around Galaxy, this workshop is open to anyone interested in the above topics without their specific ties to the application.
