Galaxy Workshops

is a web-based platform to perform data-intensive bioinformatics. There are many public Galaxy instances that you can use to perform genomic and transcriptomic analysis. In fact, we have a Galaxy instance at UGA that uses the computation resource provided by Georgia Advanced Computing Resource Center (GACRC) and is open to all UGA researchers.

Galaxy workshops @ UGA are brought to you by the Institute of Bioinformatics (IOB), the Georgia Advanced Computing Resource Center (GACRC)  and the Quantitative Biology Consulting Group (QBCG). You will have to bring your own laptop to access the workshop material and the special Galaxy instance.
