University of Missouri Informatics Institute
Introduction to Galaxy
Thursday May 2, 2013

**Instructor: Dave Clements, Galaxy Project, Emory University

Bond Life Sciences Center,

Room 572 ** (note room change)
1201 Rollins St


The workshop is free and is open to members of University of Missouri and surrounding institutions. The workshop is also now full.


Are you a life science 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 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.
