Workshop Description

Galaxy is a web-based infrastructure for bioinformatics application. The workshop will introduce you to use galaxy for analysis of next-generation sequencing data. The workshop will cover the structure of galaxy, data format and manipulation, getting and sharing data, and building and sharing workflows. We will use the tools installed on the UCLA galaxy to perform a few types of NGS analysis.
