➔ Tutorial

Dozens of public Galaxy servers are a great community resource. However, if you need more capacity (compute or storage) or a custom toolset, it is necessary to install your own Galaxy server. In this workshop, you will learn how to create your own Galaxy within a few minutes using just a web browser. We will use cloud resources to create a full-featured instance that is ready for use without limitations of public servers while requiring no technical expertise. You will then learn how to easily install additional tools for your lab’s specific needs. The workshop will also cover how to get free access to some academic clouds from around the world.

  • A general knowledge of Galaxy (for example, you should be familiar with the material in Galaxy 101 or have attended Introduction to Galaxy).
  • A wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser.  Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari will work best.
