Genome Assembly using Galaxy Australia (EMBL-ABR: Melbourne Bioinformatics Node)
This workshop will introduce attendees to Galaxy Australia and its use in genome assembly. A talk and demonstration will be followed by a hands-on tutorial. The workshop has been organised by EMBL-ABR and the Biosciences Data Enhanced Virtual Lab (DeVL) Galaxy Australia project and will be led by Dr Anna Syme from Melbourne Bioinformatics, who is coordinating training for Galaxy Australia. Anna will lead the workshop from Melbourne, with trained facilitators on hand at a number of venues across Australia to assist participants locally. INTENDED AUDIENCE Researchers and students with an interest in genome assembly. Knowledge of basic biology is assumed. LEARNING OUTCOMES By the end of this training, participants will be able to use tools in Galaxy Australia to perform genome assembly of microbial data. This workshop is part of a series of Galaxy Australia events.
