Recognition for the CGEBM Workshop Series
The current CGEBM workshop series aims to provide researchers with the tools and knowledge needed to analyse next generation sequencing data. To make this accessible to as many users as possible, the workshops cover analysis through use of the command line and through use of the graphical user interface Galaxy.
Galaxy is a community run project which gives an open, web-based platform for computational biomedical research. It is a tool used internationally by researchers across many fields and it hosts a large number of commonly used bioinformatics software. The Galaxy Training Network forms part of this community, making it easy for researchers to find Galaxy workshops. The CGEBM is delighted to join this network and support the use of Galaxy in next generation sequencing analysis. We are the first Galaxy Trainers to join from Scotland and the fourth in the UK alongside the University of Cambridge, the Earlham Institute and the University of Bradford. For more details on the Galaxy Training Network, see here.
Galaxy is being utilised in our workshops on "Quality Control of Next Generation Sequencing Data", "Genome Assembly and Annotation", "RNA Sequencing and Differential Expression", "Alignment, Visualisation and Variant Calling" and "ChIP Sequencing". If you are interested in more details on any of these workshops, check out our Training page or contact Sophie Shaw.
