This interactive beginners’ workshop will provide an introduction to using Galaxy for online data analysis. It is based on our Introduction to Galaxy workshop, now being offered across Australia through the Australian BioCommons.adidas Yeezy Boost 350

In an age of digital connectedness, open, highly accessible, globally shared data and analysis platforms have the potential to transform the way biomedical research is done, opening the way to ‘global research markets’, where competition arises from deriving understanding rather than access to samples and data. Other disciplines have embraced the benefits of global data generation and sharing, astronomy and high energy physics being two highly successful examples. We have the opportunity to mirror their successes in infrastructure funding by demonstrating that biological research can embrace the same global perspective on common infrastructure investment and data sharing.
