Analysis tools for researchers

Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix

Learn to use the Galaxy resource from the Galaxy Team at the Center for Comparative Genomics and Bioinformatics at Pennsylvania State University. Galaxy is an excellent online genome analysis tool that combines the power of existing genome annotation databases with a simple web portal with a variety of tools and algorithms, to enable users to search remote resources, combine data from independent queries, prepare, manipulate and analyze the data using a large suite of analysis tools. A history is created for every analysis providing a record ensuring reproducibility of results. Galaxy also presents the opportunity to create and share workflows of analysis.
