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.

In this age of high-throughput analysis and big data, visualisations have become an invaluable resource for the presentation and exploration of these often high-dimensional, complex, and large datasets.

While many tools in Galaxy produce static visual outputs (graphs, trees, etc), often some more interactivity is desired to aid in the exploration of these datasets. To support this need, Galaxy offers a range of visualisation options, such as Trackster for browsing genomic data and Charts for the interactive visualisation of tabular data and other datatypes.

In this workshop participants will learn how to develop such visualisations in Galaxy, more specifically: - Develop a module within the Charts visualisation plugin using Javascript - Develop a simple visualisation plugin from scratch

  • Basic understanding of Galaxy from a developer point of view.
  • Some familiarity with Javascript.
  • A wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser. Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari will work best.
