ELIXIR Norway: Using the Norwegian e-infrastructure for Life Science and usegalaxy.no

Online course on using the Norwegian e-infrastructure for Life Science (NeLS) and the national supported Galaxy (usegalaxy.no). The course will consist of lessons covering the necessary topics alternating with hands-on sessions to gain practical experience. It is organised by ELIXIR Norway (https://www.elixir-norway.org/).


The topic is on how you can use NeLS (nels.bioinfo.no) to store and share data, and to run analyses via customisable analysis workflows in usegalaxy.no. You will practice on transferring data between NeLS and usegalaxy.no, and to construct and run a complete sequence analysis workflow in usegalaxy.no.

We are pleased to announce the first Data Management workshop for Life Science projects organised in Tromsø by ELIXIR Norway . The topic is on how you can generate a data management plan for a research project that will meet the requirements of the funding organisations. You will get the opportunity to set up a data management plan for your project using the ELIXIR Norway Data Steward Wizard (DSW) tool. DSW is more flexible and provides more domain specific templates than the easyDMP offered by Uninett/Sigma2.

Course content:

  • Requirements from the funding bodies and legal requirements
  • Licensing of data, biological material and software
  • Information on national and local storage infrastructures
  • Relevant deposition repositories (data archives)
  • Hands on training and assistance to generate a data management plan

Requirements:

  • Bring your laptop
  • Optionally you can also bring your research project (if you have one)

The intended audience are researchers (PhD candidates, post doctoral fellows, researchers, Associate Professor, professor) that are planning to submit a grant application for a research project.

Tuesday 26th November 09.00-15.00

We are pleased to announce the second hands-on bioinformatics NeLS workshop organised in Tromsø by ELIXIR Norway (https://www.elixir-norway.org/).  The topic is on how you can use the Norwegian e-Infrastructure for Life Sciences (NeLS) (nels.bioinfo.no) to store and share data, and to run analyses via customisable analysis workflows in Galaxy. More specifically, we will go through how you can store data in NeLS and upload it directly into Galaxy. We will also construct and run a complete sequence analysis workflow for taxonomic profiling on a metagenomic sample.  There are no requirements for programming skills or experience using the command line, as Galaxy provides a web interface for running analysis.
