    Registration

    Registration is free, and open to anyone, but advanced registration is required.

    Audience

    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.
