Tutorial Details: Galaxy 101 NGS Data Analysis

Date: Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 01:00 pm - 04:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Joshua A. Baller, , Informatics Analyst, RISS Lauren J Mills,

This is a practical, hands-on tutorial designed to give participants experience analyzing next-generation sequence (NGS) data in Galaxy. Attendees will learn how to access their UMGC sequence datasets in Galaxy using Data Libraries, how to evaluate sequence quality using FastQC, and how to correct quality issues using trimming and filtering tools. These are the initial steps required for any NGS experiment, including RNA-Seq analysis or variant discovery. Attendees will also learn about data sharing and workflow building in Galaxy.

Level: Introductory
