GCC2019 has ended
The 2019 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2019) was held in Freiburg, Germany, 1-8 July.  There was one day of training, three days of mixed meeting and training, and then two to four days of CollaborationFest.  The meeting featured joint & parallel sessions; invited, accepted, and lightning talks; poster and demo sessions; birds-of-a-feather meetups; social events; and training sessions every day.

Thanks to everyone who helped make GCC2019 a success!

Visualisation development in Galaxy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this age of high-throughput analysis and big data, visualisations have become an invaluable resource for the presentation and exploration of these often high-dimensional, complex, and large datasets.

While many tools in Galaxy produce static visual outputs (graphs, trees, etc), often some more interactivity is desired to aid in the exploration of these datasets. To support this need, Galaxy offers a range of visualisation options, such as Trackster for browsing genomic data and Charts for the interactive visualisation of tabular data and other datatypes.

In this workshop participants will learn how to develop such visualisations in Galaxy, more specifically:
  • Develop a module within the Charts visualisation plugin using Javascript
  • Develop a simple visualisation plugin from scratch

  • Basic understanding of Galaxy from a developer point of view
  • Some familiarity with Javascript
  • A wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser. Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari will work best
