Genomics Virtual Lab — Galaxy-qld — genomic research
Galaxy-qld is a public server for analysis of high-throughput sequencing data supported by RCC, UQ and QCIF.
Galaxy is a web-based platform for computationally intensive data analysis. It does not require knowledge of IT or programming skills.
With a simple registration Galaxy-qld provides instant access to substantial computational resources and an ample amount of disk space for data manipulation.
Bioinformatic tools available on the server cover popular topics such as RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, genome resequencing and variant identification, de novo transcriptome and genome assembly.
The talk provides an overview of the latest developments of Galaxy-qld and the related resources for genomic research maintained by RCC.
The seminar is aimed at a broad range of biologists interested in analysis of high-throughput sequencing data and does not require knowledge of genomics or programming.
About the presenter
Dr Igor Makunin trained as a geneticist and molecular biologist. In 2003 he moved to the University of Queensland and switched to comparative genomics and non-coding RNA. In 2010 Igor joined the Queensland Institute of Medical Research, where he studied various aspects of the familial breast and ovarian cancers using arrays and high-throughput sequencing technologies. In 2012 Igor became a member of the newly formed Genomics Virtual Lab project at UQ, where he provides support to scientists working with high-throughput sequencing data.
