Galaxy – A Platform for Life Science Analyses (more than just genomics)

[MEC id=”893″]

Workshop Overview:


Australia hosts a nationally accessible Galaxy instance; the Galaxy Australia platform. The platform is it’s third year of national operation and is strongly aligned to the use galaxy.*ecosystem of global Galaxy platforms. This demonstration will showcase the generic features of the Galaxy platform that enables it to be a robust nationally hosted web-accessible platform that lets you conduct accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biological research. Triyearly Galaxy code base is updated and we will highlight features of the platform that demonstrate the clear  commitment of the global Galaxy developer community to delivering functionality relevant to the user base. These will include streamlined data ingest functionality (both files and metadata),  interactive tools for rich data exploration, improved workflow management. In addition, we will demonstrate how the underlying architecture of Galaxy services can be deployed to enable increasing complex data analysis, such as plant derived genome assemblies, de novo genome reconstruction and large cohort metagenomics, through the use of high memory computer nodes. Finally, the demonstration will highlight the broadening fields of research support enabled through Galaxy beyond genomics, including proteomics, metabolomics, ecology and climate modelling.
