The GTN has implemented “click to run” workflows! One click, will get you into Galaxy with a workflow imported and ready to run. If you are on either usegalaxy.org or usegalaxy.eu, we have implemented easy buttons which you can click that will direct you straight to your Galaxy server.

Clicking a single button will bring you directly into the associated Galaxy interface, with the workflow loaded into your account, and ready to run.

We have additionally added a ‘generic’ method by which you can launch workflows on your preferred server via a redirect.

How does the magic work?

In the backend the GTN has implemented very limited support for the GA4GH TRS API. Galaxy has support for loading and running workflows directly from compatible endpoints which we leverage to enable this cool feature. You can read more in the GTN API.

GTN Video Library 2.0: 107 hours of learning across 154 videos

14 June 2024   gtn

Many GTN tutorials already have recordings. These recordings were made by members of the community for a variety of (online) training events. Up until now, this video library were part of the Gallantries Project. We have now integrated this video library directly into the GTN, and made it even easier to add video recordings to GTN tutorials or slide decks! Just use a Google Form to submit your video recordings!

Phylogenetics tutorial takes researchers back to basics!

13 June 2024   Phylogenetics Tutorial GTN Australian BioCommons

A new Galaxy Training Network tutorial has been created to take researchers back to basics to uncover the principles of phylogenetics and how tree-building methods work. A longstanding collaboration between Professor Michael Charleston from the University of Tasmania and Australian BioCommons has delivered this self-guided tutorial featuring videos and hands-on exercises. To maximise its impact, the resource was tailored specifically to be shared globally via the Galaxy Training Network, and will form the basis of an upcoming live training workshop.

From GTN Intern to Tutorial Author to Bioinformatician

With growing access and interest in sequencing data, Galaxy is a knight in shining armor for wet lab scientists hoping to analyze their own data. With long term intentions of increasing access to bioinformatic analyses, the Galaxy Training Network (GTN) creates a safe space where non-computer-scientists may analyze their own data and even learn to code: an invaluable skill in today’s scientific world. Galaxy introduced me to brand new skills as an undergraduate and ultimately changed the trajectory of my career. Here is my story as a biology undergraduate with no coding experience turned GTN contributor &, eventually, coding bioinformatician: thanks to Galaxy.
