Introduction to Galaxy

Department of Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics Center for Bioinformatics & Computational Biology
University of Maryland

**A workshop for the University of Maryland community

Instructor: Dave Clements

1:30-5:00pm, April 11
Bioscience Research Building, Room 1103**


Registration is open. You'll need your Maryland dirID and password to register.


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 bioinformatic analyses.

This hands-on workshop will teach participants how to integrate data, and perform simple and complex analysis within Galaxy. 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
1:30 Welcome, Intro
Introduction to Galaxy and the Galaxy community
1:50 Basic Analysis with Galaxy
Walk though a worked, hands-on example demonstrating basic analysis within Galaxy
2:50 Visualization & Visual Analytics in Galaxy
Learn to use Galaxy's built-in visualization capabilities. We'll also demonstrate Galaxy's visual analytics support, using the tight coupling of visualization and analyses to iteratively guide analysis.
3:15 Break
3:40 Manage, Reuse and Share your Analyses with Galaxy
Use Galaxy to record every step, parameter setting, and dataset used in an analysis; share/publish analysis and resulting datasets; and to create generic workflows that can be run on different sets of input data.
4:05 Intro to NGS Analysis with Galaxy
Use Galaxy to integrate and analyze your high throughput sequencing data.
5:00 Done


The slides for the lecture part of the workshop are now available.
