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.

Slides, Exercises

This session will walk developers and bioinformaticians through the process of taking a working script or application and turning it into a Galaxy tool. It will also cover the basics of using Planemo: a command-line utility to assist in building and publishing Galaxy tools. We will investigate wrapping, common parameters, tool linting, best practices, loading tools into Galaxy, citations, and publishing tools to Github and the Galaxy Tool Shed. Common tips and tricks will be discussed as well as insights from experienced tool developers.

  • A general knowledge of Galaxy (for example, you should be familiar with the material in Galaxy 101 or have attended Introduction to Galaxy).
  • Knowledge and comfort with the Unix/Linux command line interface and a text editor. If you don't know what commands like cd, mv, rm, mkdir, chmod, grep can do then you will struggle in this workshop.
  • A wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser. Chrome or Firefox will work best.
