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 or, 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.

New Feature: Persistent URLs (PURLs) / Shortlinks

19 April 2023   new feature gtn

The GTN has added persistent URL identifiers for our tutorials, slides, and FAQs. Using the service, we have reserved GTN namespace for our persistent URLs. These work similarly to DOIs in that they will always point to a specific training material.

New Feature: GTN Rdoc

The internal functions of the GTN have, in the past, not been very well documented. Now we have started the process of fully documenting the functions and modules available to GTN developers.
