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.

RNA centric research is of growing importance for medicine and molecular biology. Increasing amounts of data from deep sequencing experiments create a demand for automatic analysis and interpretation solutions.

The RNA-Workbench offers a wide range of tools covering classic RNA-bioinformatics as well as RNA-seq fields. Predefined workflows for the annotation of non-coding RNAs or identification of differentially expressed genes are subsets of over 50 included tools from the categories RNA structure analysis, RNA alignment, RNA annotation, RNA-protein interaction, ribosome profiling, RNA-seq analysis and RNA target prediction. RNA specific visualisation solutions for dot-bracket plots and secondary structures are part of the workbench.

In contrast to pre-existing solutions, our community driven approach allowes us to include classic RNA-bioinformatics tools often with the direct support of the tool-authors. These contributions enable us to provide excellent documentation, training material and interactive tours demonstrating the functionality of the workbench.

Building on the Galaxy framework the workbench offers sophisticated analyses to users without command line knowledge, while emphasising reproducibility, customization and effortless scale up to larger infrastructures. The workbench is implemented as Galaxy Docker flavour and therefore easily extendable by additional tools, workflows, tours or training data, that can be installed from the Galaxy ToolShed. The workbench will be further improved and maintained in an ongoing community effort.
