    Are you a biological 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 bioinformatic analyses.

    This hands-on workshop 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.
