ARTbio IBPS Galaxy Spring Day - RNAseq analysis

A Galaxy training day will be held in March 21st, 2019 at the Atrium of Sorbonne Université between 9:00 am and 6:00 pm.

The Number of participants is limited to 20.

Inscriptions before March 12, 2019

Please register online and we will let you know if you are enrolled in the training in the limit of available slots.

Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research.

  • Accessible: Users without programming experience can easily specify parameters and run tools and workflows.

  • Reproducible: Galaxy captures information so that any user can repeat and understand a complete computational analysis.

  • Transparent: Users share and publish analyses via the web and create Pages, interactive, web-based documents that describe a complete analysis.

The aim of the training is to teach methods and best practices in using the Galaxy framework for intensive analyses of high throughput sequencing data. Attendees will work in a personal Galaxy account and perform a complete RNAseq analysis whose protocol is available here, from sequence quality check to differential expression analysis and Gene Ontology term enrichments. The training will also cover visualisation of data in various genome browsers.

The IBPS Galaxy Spring day is open to everyone, researchers, engineers, technicians, students in biology or medicine. However, the training should be mostly beneficial to people having already been confronted to real sequencing datasets to be mined.
