Online course by ELIXIR Norway: Using the Norwegian e-infrastructure for Life Science and usegalaxy.no
We are pleased to announce the first 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.
The topic is on how you can use NeLS 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. An overview of the event can be found at the bottom of this announcement.
There are no requirements for programming skills or experience using the command line, as Galaxy provides a web interface for running analysis.
Time: We will organise three identical events during spring 2021 - see registration below
Duration: 09.00 - 16.00
Prerequisites: FEIDE login credentials or NeLS idp (apply for NeLS idp) and a computer you have permissions to install software on
Special notes: Google Chrome have some compatibility issues with Galaxy, thus we recommend the following web browsers to be used: Firefox and Safari
- Event 1: March 23. Please register for this event using this google form

The course is limited to 20 people. First come, first served. We aim to offer the same course frequently. If these courses are full, you will be able to apply for attending the next course.
You also give consent that your NeLS user will be added to a shared project folder in NeLS where the exercise data for the course will be stored. Other participants will be able to see that you have access to this shared project.
We will record all lectures with focus on the shared screen of the presenter. The videos will be made publicly available together with the rest of the course material. If you prefer that your face is not recorded, we recommend that you turn your camera off during the presentations.
We wish to provide high quality in our training events, and are dependent on your feedback. We therefore encourage you to complete the survey that we provide with this course.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding the event.
