Introduction to Galaxy & Galaxy Workflows – now online


Presenter – Simon Gladman

This beginners tutorial will introduce Galaxy’s interface, tool use, histories. Click on these links to learn about Galaxy and available training material .

Galaxy is an open source, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research. It allows users without programming experience to easily specify parameters and run individual tools as well as larger workflows. It also captures run information so that any user can repeat and understand a complete computational analysis. Finally, it allows users to share and publish analyses via the web.

Learning objectives

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

Work with data on Galaxy

  • login to a Galaxy server
  • upload data to a Galaxy server from:
  • A file on your local computer
  • A file on a remote datastore with an accessible URL

Use tools in Galaxy

  • accessing tools via the tool menu
  • use the tool interface to run the particular tool
  • viewing/accessing tool output.
