Application

The workshop is free and anyone in the Purdue Community can apply to attend. However, space is limited and admission is competitive and based on the strength of the applications received. The workshop application deadline was October 14. If you applied, you will be notified of your application status within a few days.

Audience

Are you a biological researcher who needs to do complex analysis on large datasets?

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

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