Supporting genome informatics research using the Australian Research Cloud
Nov 08 GVL Release: New GVL Dashboard: access all GVL services from one place
GVL provides Researchers and Developers with a number of resources ....
- Galaxy: perform reproducible analyses via a friendly user interface What is Galaxy?
- GVL Workbench: perform reproducible analyses with full command line access and a windows interface What is GVL Workbench?
- Tutorials: learn analysis techniques What are GVL Tutorials?
- CloudMan: manage your cluster on the cloud, dynamically add and remove nodes What is CloudMan?
- UCSC browser: mirror of the UCSC Genome Browser What is UCSC Browser?
...on several platforms: on the NeCTAR Australian Research Cloud
- Personal: Launch your own instance with your default NeCTAR allocation
- Server: Launch your own analysis cluster on your research NeCTAR allocation, tailored to your needs
- Managed: Use the GVL managed resources

About GVL ResourcesGalaxy 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.
