Host:
GPCF TechTalk Seminar Series

Description:
The High-Throughput Sequencing Unit of the GPCF offers users at the DKFZ and in the DKTK access to a local implementation of the Galaxy bioinformatics platform for the analysis of Next-Generation Sequencing and other genomic data¹. In this TechTalk we would like to give an overview of the platform itself as well as the most important changes introduced during the latest update. The system is specifically designed to maximize flexibility and reproducibility, and encourage collaboration by being able to design workflows to do targeted analyses and sharing both data and workflows among the users that you select. This is exemplified through our efforts in establishing a specialized workflow for the analysis of Drop-Seq¹ data by adapting existing tools for use in Galaxy. We will continue to support our users in all aspects of data analysis ranging from the import and storage of your data as well as choosing the tools most appropriate for your research. Should you be interested in using the platform and would like us to provide data storage to you, please contact us at: htseqbioinf@dkfz-heidelberg.de References ¹ Giardine, Belinda et al. “Galaxy: a platform for interactive large-scale genome analysis” Genome research vol. 15,10 (2005): 1451-5. ² Macosko, Evan Z et al. “Highly Parallel Genome-wide Expression Profiling of Individual Cells Using Nanoliter Droplets” Cell vol. 161,5 (2015): 1202-1214.
