You can use a public Galaxy instance which has been tested for the availability of the used tools. They are listed along with the tutorials above.
You can also use the following Docker image for these tutorials:
docker run -p 8080:80 quay.io/galaxy/epigenetics-training
NOTE: Use the -d flag at the end of the command if you want to automatically download all the data-libraries into the container.
It will launch a flavored Galaxy instance available on http://localhost:8080. This instance will contain all the tools and workflows to follow the tutorials in this topic. Login as admin with password admin to access everything.
