2641Galaxy for SNP and Variant Data Analysis
Galaxy is a data integration and analysis platform for life sciences research (http://galaxyproject.org). This hands-on workshop briefly introduces the Galaxy platform and then walks participants through a multi-step, SNP and variant calling analysis exercise, starting with quality control. We will take advantage of Galaxy's rich tool set and visualization capabilities to do this
The workshop will also provide a brief overview of the Galaxy Project, and several ways in which the Galaxy platform is available to researchers.
Galaxy is an open-source, web-based platform, and there are over 60 publicly accessible servers around the world. Galaxy can also be installed locally, or on the cloud.
Galaxy enables bench scientists to create and experiment with sophisticated and reproducible data analysis. If you are new to next generation sequencing data analysis, or if you are trying to find a better way to manage and perform your analyses, then this workshop will be of interest to you.
Time: 4:00 PM-6:10 PM
