Galaxy is an open, web-based platform that provides access to hundreds of bioinformatics tools for data intensive biomedical research (main focus is on Next Gen sequencing data).
The system is developed by teams at the Penn State and Johns Hopkins Universities, along with thousands of contributions from the world-wide Galaxy community. For more information see: www.galaxyproject.org.
TraIT and CCA-Drylab have set-up own Galaxy servers, which are going to be used during the course and stay accessible afterwards.
The program consists of a lecture part in the morning with an introduction to Galaxy, RNAseq based differential gene expression analysis and DNAseq based genomic variant analysis. All three topics are also covered in the hands-on session in the afternoon.
