Description: This workshop will introduce basic NGS data analysis routines using the web-based Galaxy environment. It will include the following topics: (1) assessment of read qualities; (2) read trimming and filtering routines; (3) aligning reads to reference genomes; (4) generation of read counts for RNA-Seq data; (5) peak calling for ChIP-Seq experiments and (6) visualization routines of read pileups along with annotation information using the freely and very easy-to-use IGV genome browser from the Broad Institute. The material will be useful for both complete beginners and intermediate users (e.g. attended previous R workshop on NGS data analysis). No special computer knowledge is required for this workshop.Manual for this workshop
