GTN Learning Pathway

A graphic depicting a winding path from a start symbol to a trophy, with tutorials along the way
We recommend you follow the tutorials in the order presented on this page. They have been selected to fit together and build up your knowledge step by step. If a lesson has both slides and a tutorial, we recommend you start with the slides, then proceed with the tutorial.

Introduction to Galaxy and Sequence analysis

This learning path aims to teach you the basics of Galaxy and analysis of sequencing data. You will learn how to use Galaxy for analysis, and will be guided through the most common first steps of any genome analysis; quality control and a mapping or assembly of your genomic sequences.

New to Galaxy and/or the field of genomics? Follow this learning path to get familiar with the basics!

Module 1: Introduction to Galaxy

Get a first look at the Galaxy platform for data analysis. We start with a short introduction (video slides & practical) to familiarize you with the Galaxy interface, and then proceed with a slightly longer introduction tutorials where you perform a first, very simple, analysis.

Module 2: Basics of Genome Sequence Analysis

When analysing sequencing data, you should always start with a quality control step to clean your data and make sure your data is good enough to answer your research question. After this step, you will often proceed with a mapping (alignment) or genome assembly step, depending on whether you have a reference genome to work with.
