GCC 2017 has ended
The 2017 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2017) is being held in Montpellier, France, 26-30 June.  GCC2017 will include keynotes and accepted talks, poster sessions, demos, birds-of-a-feather meetups, exhibitors, and plenty of networking opportunities. There will also be three days of pre-conference activities, including hackathons and training. If you work in data-intensive biomedical research, there is no better place than GCC2017 to present your work and to learn from others.

The full printed program is also available.

This workshop will focus on visualisation of large datasets using the built-in tools of Galaxy, focusing on primary next-generation sequencing (NGS) data and the resulting downstream, aggregated data. First, using a multi-omic dataset consisting of exome and transcriptome (RNA-seq) data, participants will visualise alignments, variation, expression levels, and annotations using the Galaxy’s built-in genome browser, Trackster. Participants will learn how to create a genome visualisation, add data, configure data, move between a linear genome browser view and a Circos view, and generate complex genome visualisations (figures) with more than 12 NGS datasets. Second, using a processed multi-omic dataset, participants will create a several numerical plots (e.g., scatter plot, histogram) to gain an overview of the data. Based on insight gained from these visualisations, participants will create a heatmap to identify patterns and potential causal factors. All visualisations will be created, saved, and shared using only Galaxy and a web browser; no data or software uploads or downloads will be necessary.

  • a general knowledge of Galaxy (for example, you should be familiar with the material in Galaxy 101 or have attended Introduction to Galaxy).
  • a wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser. Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari will work best.
