Learn to use HPC via an interactive environment – Galaxy

Take part in a free Galaxy online training event – a global Galaxy course on March 14-18.

The course will take place simultaneously all over the world, during which expert support through Slack channel will be provided. Lectures will be pre-recorded, so everyone will be able to learn the topics at their own pace. Registered users will have remote access to the Galaxy environment.

Galaxy is an internet platform for biomedical data (for example, genome, proteomics) processing. It offers a variety of tools that are easy to use without specific knowledge of Linux command lines and HPC system. Training is offered for beginners, as well as for advanced Galaxy users.

These topics will be offered this year: 

  • Introduction to Galaxy
  • RNS sequencing
  • Single cell RNS
  • Protemics
  • New: SARS-CoV-2 genomics
  • New: Training for Galaxy admins
