Galaxy for NGS Data Analysis: A Hands-on Workshop

Galaxy is a data integration and analysis platform for life sciences research (http://galaxyproject.org). This hands-on workshop will introduce the Galaxy platform and walk participants through a multi-step next generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis, starting with quality control. We will review common choices in NGS data analysis, and demonstrate them within the context of Galaxy, taking full advantage of Galaxy's rich tool set and visualization capabilities.

We will also provide a brief overview of what is needed to set up your own local Galaxy instance.

Galaxy is an open-source, NIH-funded project. It is web-based and there are over 40 publicly accessible servers around the world. It can also be installed locally, or on the cloud, and commercial support is offered by several vendors. This workshop complements the Galaxy talk on Wednesday during the GMOD Workshop, which will focus on creating your own Galaxy instance on the cloud.

This session is sponsored by The BioTeam, a high-performance consulting practice dedicated to delivering objective, technology agnostic solutions to the life science researchers. The BioTeam also sells and supports the SlipStream Appliance: Galaxy Edition a fully configured and populated Galaxy server that can be installed locally.
