To participate fully, please bring a laptop.


   Registration is closed   

This workshop is free and open to anyone in the ASU community.


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.

This hands-on workshop will 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.


This workshop will introduce Galaxy and then demonstrate one or more detailed examples of using Galaxy in particular research domains.
