Get a hands-on introduction to Galaxy, an online platform for data analysis

About this Event

Galaxy is an online platform for biological research that allows people to use computational data analysis tools and workflows without the need for programming experience.

It is an open source, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research. It also captures run information so that workflows can be saved, repeated and shared efficiently via the web.

This interactive beginners workshop will provide an introduction to the Galaxy interface, histories and available tools. The material covered in this workshop is freely available through the Galaxy Training Network.

The workshop will be held via Zoom and involve a combination of presentations by the lead trainer and smaller breakout groups supported by experienced facilitators.

Lead trainer: Simon Gladman, University of Melbourne
