Variant Detection using Galaxy Australia (EMBL-ABR: Melbourne Bioinformatics Node)
This workshop provides a basic introduction to Galaxy Australia, and will include a hands-on beginners tutorial for variant detection in microbial data using Galaxy Australia.
The workshop is part of the Biosciences Data Enhanced Virtual Lab (DeVL) Galaxy Australia project and will be led by Dr Igor Makunin from the University of Queensland, who is a trainer for for Galaxy Australia. Igor will lead the workshop from Queensland, with trained facilitators on hand at a number of venues across Australia to assist participants locally.
Researchers and students with an interest in genome assembly. Knowledge of basic biology is assumed.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to use tools in Galaxy Australia to perform variant detection in microbial data.
