Introduction to Galaxy and the Genomics Virtual Laboratory
This beginners tutorial will introduce Galaxy’s interface, tool use, histories, and get new users of the Genomics Virtual Laboratory up and running.
Galaxy is an open source, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research. It allows users without programming experience to easily specify parameters and run individual tools as well as larger workflows. It also captures run information so that any user can repeat and understand a complete computational analysis. Finally, it allows users to share and publish analyses via the web. (more…)
Containerised Bioinformatics: Docker and other tools for reproducible analysis
Containerisation is a method of bundling an application or pipeline with all its dependencies, from language runtimes like Python and R to the operating system itself. This technology has already revolutionised web development by providing a simple way to run web applications in a precisely controlled environment, regardless of which computer system they are running on. This workshop will explain how these advantages can be easily applied to bioinformatics analysis, to ensure 100% reproducibility of your work, along with easy distribution of your pipelines to other users without the need for complex installation.
