The need and demand from early-stage researchers for training in management and analysis of their High Throughput Sequencing (HTS) data is increasing. Given the gap in the education currently offered by traditional providers, there is a distinct push to create and provide high quality, decentralized, accessible, scalable and practical training in bioinformatics.

Gallantries aims to address this gap by preparing training material for the computational analysis of HTS data, starting from the raw data and leading up to the development of publication ready visualizations of the analyzed results:

  • User-friendly data analysis in Galaxy, from the raw sequencing data to the downstream count tables
  • Downstream analysis & visualisation using Rstudio in Galaxy with manipulation and visualization of the results within R, including an introduction to R using RStudio
Beyond the curriculum, Gallantries aims to address the scalability of training delivery via hybrid training events, i.e. pairing-up on-site helpers with remote instructors across multiple sites simultaneously: With this model, we aim to bring training events to the trainers while reducing the environmental impact of instructor travels.
