The Bioinformatics Practitioners Club and Boyce Thompson Institute are organizing a 1 day Galaxy workshop at Mann library on July 21st. Galaxy is an open source, web-based platform for data intensive biological research. Users without programming experience can easily specify parameters and run tools and workflows. Galaxy captures information so that any user can repeat and understand a complete computational analysis. You can find more information at https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/ and https://github.com/nekrut/galaxy/wiki/Galaxy101-1.
Workshop registration is free but limited and on a first come first serve basis. The workshop will feature practical examples using RNAseq and instructions on how to run Galaxy in the cloud (Amazon Web Services).
