Galaxy instances

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

NOTE: Use the -d flag at the end of the command if you want to automatically download all the data-libraries into the container.
