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.

Experiments that produce large amounts of data are now routinely performed at the scale of a laboratory. Results of these experiments are stored into files or loaded into relational databases. However, analyzing these data typically requires to combine them with other data and knowledge bases.

Semantic Web technologies such as RDF and SPARQL are key elements for combining datasets, which has led to the emergence of linked data.

AskOmics (AGPL, https://github.com/askomics/) is a web application supporting both intuitive data integration and querying. It provides a user-friendly interface to hide the technical difficulties inherent to the use of RDF and SPARQL technologies.

AskOmics automatically integrates tabular or GFF files and generates the corresponding RDF triples. It also provides a visually intuitive graph-based querying interface. Complex queries are built by selecting a sequence of nodes in a graph, and defining data filters. The corresponding SPARQL query is generated by AskOmics and executed on the selected datasets.

In this demo we will present the integration of AskOmics with Galaxy: Galaxy tools to integrate data into a remote AskOmics server (using Askocli, AGPL, https://github.com/askomics/askocli), and AskOmics ability to retrieve datasets from Galaxy and export results into it (using BioBlend). This opens the door to an Interactive Environment currently under final development.
The compatibility of AskOmics with Galaxy allows users to connect their pipelines to AskOmics in a simple way and bridge the gap between Galaxy and the Semantic Web.
