Galaxy Training

Galaxy ( is a web platform that allows performing reproducible NGS data analyses in a user-friendly graphical interface. To ensure scalability, these analyses are performed on high-performance servers and super-computers (EMBL cluster maintained by the EMBL IT Services). In this training we want to give the participants workable knowledge on the Galaxy platform. The training will use the EMBL Galaxy server maintained by GBCS ( Most of the time will be devoted to hands-on sessions during which participants will be given the choice to analyse a RNA-seq or a ChIP-seq dataset.

Costs: Free!


Markus Fritz, Jelle Scholtalbers and Charles Girardot (GBCS)

When & Where

Wednesday 21st of February
From 9h to 17h. in room 417

Targeted Audience

Anyone generating or analysing sequencing data (NGS). The training is relevant for both wet and dry biologists.
No programming knowledge is required.

What you will learn

  • What Galaxy is
  • How is our EMBL Galaxy Server organised and connected to other EMBL resources (emBASE, ITS HPC, GeneCore …)
  • How to run analysis (e.g. mapping reads to genome, calling differentially expressed genes)
  • How to assemble workflows and run them on multiple fastq files
  • How to import, export and organise your (and third-party) data
  • How to perform basic ChIP-seq and RNA-seq analysis
  • How to share data, histories and workflows


Participants are expected to bring their own laptop.
