Dozens of UQ researchers and scientists from other Australian institutions use Galaxy-qld for genomics research and analysis of next-generation sequencing data. RCC provides both IT and bioinformatics support for the server.
With more than 500 registered users and growing, Galaxy-qld is steadily broadening its capability with new software and reference datasets in response to user requests. The server now offers the ultra-fast STAR gapped aligner for RNA-sequencing data, with precomputed indices for the mouse and human genome assemblies.
A new release of the popular BEDtools package was installed, as well as Find and Replace tools for text manipulation. The GATK2 package was updated, and the GATK bundle is now available as a data library. GTF files with annotations of human genes are also available as a data library.
The Galaxy-qld support team liaise with UQ researchers and assist in data analysis, workflow development and Galaxy training. For any Galaxy-qld inquiries please contact RCC’s Igor Makunin: email@example.com.
