Hello everyone,

There will be 4 days of Galaxy-based training at UC Davis, December 10-13.  See below for details.

These do sell out, so if you are interested, please think about registering sooner, rather than later.

Registration is now open for Bioinformatics Bootcamps in December!

We’re excited to announce our next offering of Bioinformatics Bootcamps, which will be held on the UC Davis campus December 10-13.  

These focused one-day courses are perfect for the student, postdoc, faculty, or industry professional looking to get up to speed quickly on the latest technologies and techniques in bioinformatics. Students will work on their own laptops and have continued access to software and example data used in the exercises through our public Amazon Web Services virtual machine (details here). The first three bootcamps will use the Galaxy platform, and the final bootcamp will use both Galaxy and the command-line. The Alignment and Assembly bootcamps (Dec. 11th & 12th) require you to know Galaxy, so if you are unfamiliar with Galaxy, you should also take the Introduction bootcamp on Dec. 10th.

Tuesday, December 10:    

Introduction to Next-Generation Sequence Analysis with Galaxy

Wednesday, December 11:    

Next-Generation Sequence Alignment and Variant Discovery

Thursday, December 12:    

Genome Assembly using Next-Generation Sequence Data

Friday, December 13:    

Introduction to the Amazon Cloud for Galaxy and the Command-Line

Daily instruction will run from 9am until 5pm. Lunch, light breakfast, and snacks will be provided. Enrolment for each bootcamp will be capped at 24 students. Please enroll early to be assured of a seat, as these bootcamps usually fill up quickly!

More information, including full descriptions of each bootcamp can be found at https://training.bioinformatics.ucdavis.edu/bootcamps/

Pricing and Payment

The cost for each bootcamp is $200 (academic/government) or $250 (non-academic/industry). We now accept credit cards. UC Davis attendees can also charge their registration directly to a DaFis account.


If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us:

We hope to see you in December!
