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.

“This was our first time collaborating with QFAB and we were very pleased to work with talented, enthusiastic and highly professional individuals in their team. They basically walked us through every step of the process of data analysis and explained in detail the bioinformatic terminology and tools used to process our data. They also suggested further analyses that could be done with what we had. Their input in our work has helped accelerate our research in plant salinity tolerance. We look forward to working with QFAB again and I am more than happy to endorse QFAB for their expertise in bioinformatics and genomics.”
