Introduction to Galaxy admin: Setting up a Galaxy instance as a service

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Slides, Virtual Machine

What is important when you set up a Galaxy server from scratch, what are the pitfalls you might run into, how to interact with the potential users of the service you gonna offer, and how to make sure, the Galaxy instance you have set up is really used in the end. After a general introduction, several Galaxy installations are presented. The session will include some demonstrations and hands-on exercises. We will finish with a panel discussion, where we intend to discuss questions from the workshop participants.

  • Virtualbox installed on the laptop: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
  • The VM for the course downloaded from http://folk.uio.no/nikolaiv/gcc2017_SetupGalaxyAsService.ova and Imported into Virtualbox (File > Import Appliance)
  • Familiar with the Bioinformatics problems (and their solutions) that wet lab scientists run into.
  • Knowledge and comfort with the Unix/Linux command line interface and a text editor. If you don't know what cd, mv, rm, mkdir, chmod, grep and so on can do then you will struggle in this workshop.
  • A wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser. Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari will work best.
