Summer 2016 Galaxy ChIP-seq courses

First session: Tuesday, August 23, 2016 in M1-A303, 2:00 - 5:00 pm

Second session: Wednesday, August 24, 2016 in M1-A303, 2:00 - 5:00 pm

(These sessions are independent and cover the same material; please register for only one.)

Galaxy is an increasingly popular web-based platform for performing complex and reproducible computational biology analyses with no computer programming. Though the original public Galaxy server, Galaxy Main, is free and open to the public, it cannot scale to meet everyone’s needs. Contention for computational resources among its thousands of users can lead to long wait times, and its data storage quotas can prohibit some types of analyses. Consequently, many institutions around the world have made Galaxy available to their researchers locally, using their own computational resources and storage. We’ve done the same with, which is available on the Hutch internal network and uses the same infrastructure as other Scientific Computing services.

This course will be an introduction to ChIP-seq experiment analysis and visualization using Galaxy. No prior Galaxy experience is required, but you may also be interested in our summer Galaxy 101 courses. By working through the tutorial, attendees will learn how to use Galaxy to perform basic analysis and visualization of a ChIP-seq experiment, including:

Attendees must bring a laptop to the course. Please be sure your laptop can connect to the Marconi on-campus wireless network prior to the class.
