About GVL Resources

Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research.

  • Accessible: Users without programming experience can easily specify parameters and run tools and workflows.
  • Reproducible: Galaxy captures information so that any user can repeat and understand a complete computational analysis.
  • Transparent: Users share and publish analyses via the web and create Pages, interactive, web-based documents that describe a complete analysis.

GVL Workbench is a multifunction genomics analysis platform

  • GVL Galaxy instance, with a comprehensive set of tools including all those required to run the GVL Tutorials
  • RStudio IDE is a powerful and productive user interface for R
  • IPython Notebook, a web-based interactive computational environment where you can combine code execution, text, mathematics, plots and rich media into a single document
  • Lubuntu Desktop Environment, a lightweight UNIX desktop environment
  • full command line access to the Ubuntu server

GVL Tutorials (@GVL LEARN) are a set of self-paced instructions allowing you to learn analysis techniques on our GVL Galaxy Tutorial server. You can further explore analysis techniques by using the GVL Protocol documents.

Register at a GVL Galaxy Managed Services (@GVL USE) and start your analysis

CloudMan allows you to manage many aspects of your analysis cluster, including dynamically adding and removing nodes and administering Galaxy.

UCSC Genome Browser (@GVL BROWSE) allows you to visualise genome sequence data from a variety of vertebrate and invertebrate species and major model organisms, integrated with a large collection of aligned annotations.
