UAB Galaxy Workshop Tutorial
Time is limited, but this tutorial will account creation and logging in to galaxy and the cheaha cluster. This will be followed by a short but important section of how to get your data into galaxy and then finally tutorials on 2 common tasks: DNA-Seq and RNA-Seq. If there is time there will be an advanced section on workflow creation, Galaxy development and running your own personal galaxy instance.
Getting Started Tutorial
Galaxy Data Import
There are a number of options to upload data:
- Uploading through the browser (http) !!Max 2G file size!!
- Copying files to cheaha and linking them in (sftp and scp)
- Linking to an existing data library
An explanation of the tradeoffs can be found in this mini tutorial on uploading files.
For the purpose of realism, simplicity and speed, this tutorial uses a portion of a real virus dataset that has kindly been provided by Dr. Mark Prichard and was one of the first NextGen sequencing projects undertaken by CCTS. Our object is to process the results from 2 viruses, a wild type Vaccinia virus and a derived mutant strain and analyze the differences in Galaxy.
For the purpose of realism, simplicity and speed, this tutorial uses a small portion of a real mouse dataset that has kindly been provided by Dr. Kim Keeling. Our object is to determine gene expression differences between the control cells and the drugged cells.
This will cover use and creation of galaxy workflows.
This will cover topics such as doing galaxy development with git, customizing galaxy and running a personal instance of galaxy on cheaha.
