Galaxy is a web-based tool that allows users to acquire data sets from a variety of sources, including the UCSC Genome Browser, and to manipulate and analyze these data sets. A variety of types of sequence/text manipulation tools are available. These include many of common Linux/Unix-type functions and all of the EMBOSS tools. Its major role is in enabling a variety of genomic-level manipulations on large data sets, including some analyses useful for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data. The use of these NGS tools will be highlighted in this session. Galaxy has a workflow generation capability that allows users to set up pipelines based on tools within Galaxy, save them and re-use/share them. Prior to the workshop, all participants should go to: and register for an account under the User dropdown menu.
