The Galaxy Community and ELIXIR organise a second webinar series to demonstrate how open software and public research infrastructures can be used in analysing and publishing SARS-CoV2 data.
In a series of six webinar sessions, experts from ELIXIR and the global Galaxy community from the US, Australia and Europe will demonstrate how open access and open science are fundamental for fast and efficient response to public health crises. The series follows on the first Galaxy-ELIXIR webinar series organised in April-May 2020. It will introduce the latest Galaxy tools developed for working with SARS-CoV-2 data and discuss some of the challenges in accessing, analysing and interpreting them.
The kick-off session of the webinar series takes place on 20 January 2021 and will run weekly on Wednesdays 18.00-19.00 EEST.
Session 1: COVID-19 analysis in Galaxy: Lessons learned and introduction to the series
Session 2: Importance of (open) infrastructures in responding to a pandemic
Session 3: Supporting the COVID-19 Data portal: viral data cleaning from human reads and submission to ENA
Session 4: Insights from selection analysis of complete genomes and read-level data
Session 5: Viral Beacon and Galaxy variant workflows
Session 6: DRS, long-read-sequencing, proteomics and more — an update to recent COVID-19 workflow developments
