This is a request to please help get the word out about the upcoming Galaxy Admin Training event in Salt Lake.
Please consider forwarding this announcement to any individuals or groups that might be interested.
The Galaxy Admin Training workshop https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/AdminTraining2016 will be held November 7-11 in Salt Lake City, Utah, the week before Supercomputing’16 http://sc16.supercomputing.org/ also meets in Salt Lake. The workshop offers Basic https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/AdminTraining2016/BasicsSession and Advanced https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/AdminTraining2016/AdvancedSession sessions.
Galaxy https://galaxyproject.org/ is an open web based platform for biomedical data integration and analysis. It is deployed at large and small organizations around the world and used in a broad range of biomedical research domains, and across the tree of life. Galaxy enables life science researchers to perform their own data analysis without having to learn command line interfaces or Linux package management. Galaxy transparently records all analysis steps and eases workflow reuse and sharing. If your organization is looking for how to empower your researchers, then please consider attending one or both sessions.
Participants will learn how to install, configure, customize, and extend their own Galaxy servers. Topics include tool configuration, authentication and user management, using heterogeneous storage and compute services, and many other topics that will enable you to get your own Galaxy server up and running, performing well, and used by your community.
Registration https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/AdminTraining2016/Registration is now open, but space is limited. *Early registration ends September 19*. Participants can register for one or both sessions. Please review each session’s prerequisites before registering.
Galaxy Admin Training 2016 is hosted by the University of Utah Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC) http://www.chpc.utah.edu/, the Department of Biomedical Informatics http://medicine.utah.edu/dbmi/ and the Clinical & Translational Science Biomedical Informatics Core (CCTS BMIC) http://medicine.utah.edu/ccts/bmic/ at the University of Utah http://utah.edu/.
