Galaxy-based Multi-omic Informatics Hub for Cancer Researchers

January 15, 2020 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET
NCI Shady Grove, 9609 Medical Center Drive, Room 2E032/034 and via Webinar

On Wednesday, January 15, Dr. Tim Griffin and Dr. Pratik Jagtap will present "Galaxy-based Multi-omic Informatics Hub for Cancer Researchers."

In this talk, Dr. Griffin and Dr. Jagtap will present short demonstrations of multi-omic tools and validated workflows and discuss application and access to these resources. Utilizing the Galaxy platform with extension of Galaxy for proteomics (Galaxy-P project), Drs. Griffin and Jagtap will provide insights about their goal to implement data analysis and informatics tools for integration of biological mass spectrometry data (proteomics and metabolomics) with genomic / transcriptomic information to advance cancer research. The Galaxy-based Multi-omic Informatics Hub for Cancer Researchers is funded through NCI’s Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) program (1U24CA199347-01A1).

The Data Science Seminar Series presents talks from innovators in the research and informatics communities both within and outside of NCI.
