Saint Louis University Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Introduction to Galaxy
Tuesday April 30, 2013

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

Caroline Building, Room 204**


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


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.
