Presentation from RNA-Seq workshop at IMB

Today we had a Galaxy workshop for postgraduate students at IMB. The participants used data and protocol from the Basic RNA-Seq Galaxy tutorial provided by Genomics Virtual Lab. The second half of the workshop was dedicated to Galaxy workflows. The participants created, modified and used a Galaxy workflow.

The workshop was done on Galaxy-tut. The server was updated recently, and it coped well with the load during the workshop.

The workshop presentation is available for download as a pdf file.

Galaxy workshop at UQ: expression of interest

Are you interested in attending a Galaxy workshop at UQ? Email Igor at The date and place will be arranged when I get expression of interest from several persons. The proposed topic: RNA-Seq in Galaxy (analysis of differential gene expression using high throughput sequencing data). The workshop is aimed on new Galaxy users. It will cover data import, alignment of reads to a reference genome, Cuffdiff, data manipulation in Galaxy. The participants will create and use a Galaxy workflow.
