Are you a biomedical researcher 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 in domains such as variation, RNA-Seq / differential expression, and metagenomics. 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.


Time Topic
10:00 Introduction to Galaxy and simple next-generation sequencing analysis
12:00 Lunch (catered)
1:00 Advanced next generation sequencing analysis
4:00 Done
Coffee and tea will also be available in the morning and in the afternoon.


The workshop is being held at the University Fitness and Conference Center on the Penn State Hershey campus.

This is a very much a hands-on workshop. To fully participate, attendees need to bring a wi-fi enabled laptop with either the Firefox or Google Chrome web browser installed.
