Tools for Life Science

Date: Tuesday, November 03, 2015, 10:00-18:00
Location: LRZ Building, Garching/Munich, Boltzmannstr. 1, Kursraum 1

This course presents a comprehensive overview of the principles and applications of scientific workflow for life science, using the LRZ computational facilities.

The course combines lectures with hands-on exercises in which the participants learn to apply these principles to real biomedical datasets.This training will give the participants insights in scientific workflow systems with applications in bioinformatics and data mining.

In particular it will provide life scientists with:

  • an overview of scientific workflow systems
  • an introduction to R, Galaxy, and CLC bio,
with discussion of user wishes
  • hands-on experience running Galaxy
, using CLC bio and R/Rstudio on LRZ hardware

The course will provide the opportunity to discuss the computational requirements and needs of the Life Science community at Munich, for which a discussion session has been scheduled. 

Please forward this invitation to interested colleagues. Participation is free.
