Galaxy for NGS analysis: A web-based platform for data intensive biological research


Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for data intensive biomedical research. It offers an accessible, reproducible and transparent computational workbench for the biologist. This workbench is very useful in automating repeated analysis steps in the form of workflows. The workbench interface is simple and intuitive, supports collaboration and integrates data and analysis tools together in a single place. This course will provide an introduction to Galaxy and its features. It offers hands-on training on Galaxy to both biologists and bioinformaticans.
