R/Bioconductor tools are popular among bioinformaticians for conducting analyses on high-throughput genomics data. Many researchers have written and used their own R/Bioconductor tools but have limited options for sharing their methods with collaborators and ensuring reproducibility of their work. While some R/Bioconductor tools are currently integrated into Galaxy, scientific communities would benefit greatly if a larger repertoire of these tools were available. In this workshop, we will describe the key components of Galaxy tools and outline approaches for integrating R/Bioconductor tools into the Galaxy platform. Workshop attendees will engage in writing their own R/Bioconductor tool and integrating the tool into Galaxy. Additional topics covered in this workshop include wrapping R/Bioconductor tools using Planemo, dealing with R/Bioconductor dependencies, and if time permits interacting with RData objects from within Galaxy using RStudio Galaxy Interactive Environment (GIE). Participants are encouraged to bring in an R-script they want to integrate with Galaxy for the hands on session.

  • Basic understanding of Galaxy from a tool developer point of view or attendance at the Writing and Publishing Galaxy Tools workshop.
  • Basic experience with R/Bioconductor.
  • A wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser.  Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari will work best.
