NGS on the Galaxy Platform



The aim of this course is designed for students without programming experience that want to process and analyse NGS data. In this course, we will use Galaxy, an open-source, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research. Even if we are only going to cover an NGS pipeline here (variant calling), this course will give students enough understanding on how Galaxy works, allowing them to easily run bioinformatics tools, setting up parameters and building larger workflows.

Before taking this course, it is important to understand the basics of NGS by taking the NGS: Introduction and pre-processing pipeline course.

This course is for you if:

  • You are a complete/near complete beginner to bioinformatics
  • You are a student, researcher, and professional seeking to enhance your skills in analyzing biological sequences, process NGS data and you don't have access to a cluster
  • You want to be able to perform pre-processing and analysis of NGS data
  • You are interested in variant calling and annotation
