NGS Analysis and Workflows using Galaxy
This hands-on Galaxy workshop will cover several common analysis pathways with an emphasis on maximising basic and intermediate level functions of the Galaxy application for reproducible, publication quality, scientific research.
- April 1, 2015 from 11:30AM - 4:30PM
- Lunch included
- Please indicate your interest or RSVP using Eventbrite
- Open to Stanford University researchers only
- Wiki Galaxy Project Workshop 2015
While the workshop will be useful and informative for new Galaxy users, attendees will get the most out of the hands-on exercises if they have some basic familiarity with using Galaxy.
- The first thing you should try: Galaxy 101
- Review a set of introductory-level tutorials: Using Galaxy
- Get involved with the Galaxy Scientific user community by joining in on the conversations at Galaxy Biostars (which has now moved to help.galaxyproject.org
- Resources: Learn and Support
What is Galaxy and why could it be interesting to me?
Galaxy is a web-based, open source, data integration and analysis platform for life science research. The core pillars of the application are:
- Accessibility: enable bench scientists to create bioinformatics analyses
- Reproducibility: facilitate computational methods to be completely easily reproducible
- Transparency: enable easy sharing and publishing of research data and analyses
A sample instance of the application that is free to use is available at: usegalaxy.org
