There will be two Galaxy workshops at the University of Southern California
(USC) next week. Both are presented by Jeremy Goecks of Emory University and
the Galaxy team. *Both workshops are open to the public:*
*Galaxy: A web‐based workbench for interactive and reproducible analysis of
high‐throughput sequencing data, Thursday, June 23, 2011*
At Aresty Auditorium, Harylene J Norris Cancer Research Tower, USC Health
Science Campus, 1450 Biggy Street Registration is free, but required.

9:15am-Noon Introduction to Galaxy including 30 min. Q&A Session
2:00pm-5:00pm High‐throughput sequencing data analysis including 45 min.
*Progress and Challenges in Developing a Web-based Platform for
Computational Biomedical Research, Friday, June 24, 2011
See USC ISI AI Seminar Page (
http://ai.isi.edu/index.php?module=seminars/index) for details on time and
The recent reliance on computation in biology has created an informatics
crisis for biomedical researchers: computational resources are often
difficult to use, communicating techniques and experiments is challenging,
and reproducibility is very limited. Galaxy is one approach for addressing
these problems. Galaxy is a popular Web-based platform for performing
accessible, reproducible, and transparent genomics research. Galaxy provides
a collaborative environment for performing complex analyses with automatic
and unobtrusive provenance tracking; these features allow transparent
sharing of both the precise computational details underlying an analysis and
also intent, context, and narrative. Based on experiences with Galaxy,
Jeremy will discuss some open problems that might be addressed using
artificial intelligence methods and techniques.
