NGS Analysis and Workflows using Galaxy
This hands-on Galaxy workshop will cover several common analysis pathways with an emphasis on maximising basic and intermediate level functions of the Galaxy application for reproducible, publication quality, scientific research.
April 1, 2015 from 11:30AM - 4:30PM
- Lunch included
Please indicate your interest or RSVP using Eventbrite
Open to Stanford University researchers only
While the workshop will be useful and informative for new Galaxy users, attendees will get the most out of the hands-on exercises if they have some basic familiarity with using Galaxy.
The first thing you should try: Galaxy 101
Review a set of introductory-level tutorials: Using Galaxy
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
