Galaxy is a web-based platform for the biologist to perform Next-Generation Sequence analysis using open source bioinformatics software. It does not require programming or Linux command line experience. An institutional galaxy server is available for the Pitt research community through the Center for Research Computing.
This hands-on workshop teaches the basics of Galaxy including (1) the interface navigation and interaction and (2) how to create, modify, and extract workflows. Attendees will be guided through a working example of RNA-seq data (GSE52778) analysis analysis using FastQC, Trim Galore, HISAT2, featureCounts, and DEseq2.
You must sign up for a Center for Research Computing HPC allocation, and mention your intention to attend HSLS-offered workshop on RNA-Seq analysis using Galaxy.
