Workshop: using genap and galaxy for genomics analyses

The GenAP application aims at reducing the computational bottlenecks associated with the processing of high-throughput data sets, and empowering the life science community in general to explore their data in new ways.

This workshop will give an introduction to GenAP and its components. The application makes use of the Compute Canada HPC infrastructure; we will see how an investigator can easily request access to these computing resources. We will then explore the GenAP portal, which is the entry point to all of the platform's services. Finally, most of the session will be dedicated to a hands-on experience with GenAP's Galaxy setup, one of the platform's main services.

Galaxy is a web-based platform for data intensive biomedical research. Their motto is "Data intensive biology for everyone." A series of tutorials will go through a few typical analysis pipelines on Galaxy, enabling non-bioinformaticians to run analyses themselves.
