12. - 13. 11. 2018 Bioinformatics workshop, INBIT, the Czech Republic

High-quality data analysis is essential for any successful high-throughput experiment. At the same time, many tools for the analysis are available only in a command line which is not accessible for everyone. Galaxy is an open source, web-based platform for data intensive biomedical research. Controlled through a graphical user interface, Galaxy can empower molecular biologists with the ability to explore their data without the necessity for coding or deep IT knowledge. This practically oriented workshop will guide participants through working with Galaxy to answer particular scientific questions.  Specifically, we will explore Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) datasets of DNA variants (DNA-Seq), gene expression (RNA-Seq), and protein-RNA interaction (CLIP-seq) experiments as example workflows. The workshop will be framed as a hands-on guided tutorial with additional time for individual exploration using Galaxy.
