Galaxy Series: Data Intensive and Reproducible Research

Launched at the 2013 Galaxy Community Conference, this thematic series of articles highlighting papers relating to the Galaxy platform for computational research in the life and biomedical sciences. Focusing on toolkits, applications and best practice, articles can also take advantage of the GigaScience GigaGalaxy server to archive and host histories, analyses and tools to promote reproducible and transparent research.

  1. Metabolomics is increasingly recognized as an invaluable tool in the biological, medical and environmental sciences yet lags behind the methodological maturity of other omics fields. To achieve its full potent...

    Authors: Robert L. Davidson, Ralf J. M. Weber, Haoyu Liu, Archana Sharma-Oates and Mark R. Viant
    Citation: GigaScience 2016 5:10
  2. With next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies, the life sciences face a deluge of raw data. Classical analysis processes for such data often begin with an assembly step, needing large amounts of computing...

    Authors: Yvan Le Bras, Olivier Collin, Cyril Monjeaud, Vincent Lacroix, Éric Rivals, Claire Lemaitre, Vincent Miele, Gustavo Sacomoto, Camille Marchet, Bastien Cazaux, Amal Zine El Aabidine, Leena Salmela, Susete Alves-Carvalho, Alexan Andrieux, Raluca Uricaru and Pierre Peterlongo
    Citation: GigaScience 2016 5:9
  3. The NCBI BLAST suite has become ubiquitous in modern molecular biology and is used for small tasks such as checking capillary sequencing results of single PCR products, genome annotation or even larger scale p...

    Authors: Peter J. A. Cock, John M. Chilton, Björn Grüning, James E. Johnson and Nicola Soranzo
    Citation: GigaScience 2015 4:39
  4. Many bioinformatics tools use reference data, such as genome assemblies or sequence databanks. Galaxy offers multiple ways to give access to this data through its web interface. However, the process of adding ...

    Citation: GigaScience 2015 4:22
  5. Advances in next generation sequencing make it possible to obtain high-coverage sequence data for large numbers of viral strains in a short time. However, since most bioinformatics tools are developed for comm...

    Authors: Yinan Wan, Daniel W Renner, Istvan Albert and Moriah L Szpara
    Citation: GigaScience 2015 4:19
  6. Galaxy offers a number of visualisation options with components, such as Trackster, Circster and Galaxy Charts, but currently lacks the ability to easily combine outputs from different tools into a single view...
