Introduction to Galaxy
April 12 + April 13

**A workshop for the Johns Hopkins community

Instructor: Dave Clements

612 Physiology
725 North Wolfe Street**

Biological Chemistry @ Johns Hopkins
Reddy and Sollner-Webb Labs
McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine
Salzberg Lab
Johns Hopkins


Both workshops are now full.

Registration was free, and open to anyone in the Johns Hopkins community.


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

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

These hands-on workshops 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.

No programming or Linux command line experience is required.


The agenda for both days will be:

Time Topic
9:00 Welcome, Intro
9:20 Basic Analysis with Galaxy
10:20 Coffee Break
10:45 NGS Analysis I
Noon Lunch (provided)
12:45 NGS Analysis II
1:45 Visualization & Visual Analytics in Galaxy
2:05 Persistence, Workflows, Sharing and Publishing
2:30 Coffee Break
3:00 Do your own analysis!
4:30 Done
