Plant Transcriptome Analysis using Galaxy
I'm pleased to announce that The Galaxy project will organize a workshop on plant transcriptomics in the coming weeks. It will be a one-week event introducing (sc)RNA-Seq concepts and demonstrate detailed data analysis using Galaxy. The sessions will be recorded with live support in chat, in which experts will answer questions on a peer-to-peer basis. The workshops will make use of the European Galaxy server and the Galaxy Training Material. Both will stay accessible and open after the training.
The purpose of this workshop is to gain knowledge on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) with a special focus on bulk and single-cell RNA-Seq data analysis in Arabidopsis thaliana. Although it is designed to deal with plant transcriptome data analysis, most of the analysis can be adapted to other organisms too.
Prerequisites: The target audience includes biologists and researchers interested in bulk and single-cell RNA-Seq data analysis. Specifically, we encourage scholars that have begun biological data analysis and are interested to know what RNA-Seq analysis is and how they can use Galaxy for RNA-seq data analysis. Different datasets will be used during this workshop and the audience will learn universal tools, workflows, and a framework applicable to different domains.
