Using the Scratchbook to view multiple datasets


If you would like to view two or more datasets at once, you can use the Scratchbook feature in Galaxy:

  1. Click on the Scratchbook icon galaxy-scratchbook on the top menu bar.
    • You should see a little checkmark on the icon now
  2. View galaxy-eye a dataset by clicking on the eye icon galaxy-eye to view the output
    • You should see the output in a window overlayed over Galaxy
    • You can resize this window by dragging the bottom-right corner
  3. Click outside the file to exit the Scratchbook
  4. View galaxy-eye a second dataset from your history
    • You should now see a second window with the new dataset
    • This makes it easier to compare the two outputs
  5. Repeat this for as many files as you would like to compare
  6. You can turn off the Scratchbook galaxy-scratchbook by clicking on the icon again
