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.

South Green is a bioinformatics platform applied to the genomic resource analysis of southern and Mediterranean plants. The South Green web portal (http://www.southgreen.fr/) provides access to a large panel of bioinformatics resources including its own Galaxy instance which support a large community of users in Montpellier, France and beyond.

In addition to the generic tools provided with the standard installation of Galaxy, the South Green Galaxy instance (http://galaxy.southgreen.fr/galaxy/) contains a large collection of exclusive tools, Galaxy wrappers and workflows designed for analyses applied to plant genomes.

It actually comprises more than 100 Galaxy wrappers, 9 pre-configured workflows designed for recurrent analyses such as NGS mapping/cleaning, RNAseq, SNP calling and filtering, Genome-Wide Association Study, basic population genetics, structural variations, metagenomics and phylogenetics. We also developed innovative solution to graphically display outputs of each workflows.

Home-made Galaxy wrappers have been deposited in our local/central toolshed (http://galaxy.southgreen.fr/toolshed/) or in github (https://github.com/SouthGreenPlatform/galaxy-wrappers). Galaxy is extensively used to conduct capacity building activities. It is currently connected to HPC but we are also initiating use of Docker to disseminate some workflows in the IFB cloud, thus facilitating training activities worldwide.
