This 1.5-day workshop will include a short introduction to next-generation sequencing theory and an introduction to Galaxy. The hands-on component of the workshop will cover the concepts of de novo assembly and initial annotation of a genome from short-read NGS data.
Systems Biology Platform
The Systems Biology Platform is a state-of-the-art scalable computational environment to power integrative -omics analysis. This platform is unique in Australia and consists of high-performance hardware and an integrated suite of public and commercial software linked to curated datasets. Built around workflow engines, the platform integrates disparate data and tools from different computational resources as shown in the figure below.
This Computational Platform is supported by the Australian Research Council’s Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities funding scheme:
- LE0989334, An integrated high-performance computational platform powering systems biology investigation, CIs-Ragan, Grimmond, Muscat, Teasdale, Barker, Gorse, Wells and Little
- LE120100071, Chemi–Biology Computational Platform for Lead Discovery in Infectious Disease, CIs-Ragan, Cooper, Capon, Gorse, Stoermer, Camp, Andrews, Hofmann, Kurtboke, Huston, Timms
