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.

“QFAB has collaborated with us over a number of years to build a world-first spider toxin database that allows us to combine data from publicly available databases including, mRNA and protein sequences, 3D structures, and functional information for hundreds of venom proteins. In our most recent project, QFAB worked with us to add a number of new features to the database, including a toxin mass calculator, taxonomic target search, and mechanisms to control the privacy of records. QFAB’s innovative approach and responsiveness has been essential to the success of this project. I am happy to endorse QFAB as a provider of highly effective research data management solutions.” Read more about our work on the ArachnoServer
