Introduction to Galaxy Workshop

Boyce Thompson Institute
Cornell University

Instructor: Dave Clements

Location: Room B30A, Mann library
Cornell University


**This workshop is now full. However, you can still [get on the waiting list](https://docs.google.com/forms/d/13j3dVkcpHbd2p0nWghnYeOrd4iQkXhRCGnLXCZpvp-k/viewform).**

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.


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.


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