Contributing to the Galaxy Training Material - Creating a new tutorial - Defining the technical infrastructure

Galaxy is a great solution to train the bioinformatics concepts: numerous bioinformatics tools are available (almost 5,000 in the ToolShed), it can be used by people without amy computer science skills, it trains to use technology, outlining available resources and efforts that have made them accessible to researchers, it is scalable. In 2016, the Galaxy Training Network decide to set up a new infrastructure for delivering easily Galaxy related training material. The idea was to develop something open and online based on a community effort, as always in Galaxy.

Questions of the tutorial:

  • How can we define the technical infrastructure for a tutorial?
  • How to define the tools needed for a tutorial?
  • How to add the needed data directly in an instance?
  • How to add the workflows related to a tutorial?
  • How can we check the technical infrastructure is working?
  • How can we make an existing Galaxy instance able to run a tutorial?

Objectives of the tutorial:

  • Extracting the technical description for a tutorial
  • Populating an existing instance with the needed tools, data and workflows for a tutorial
  • Creating a Galaxy Docker flavor with the needed tools, data and workflows for a tutorial
  • Testing the Galaxy Docker flavor of a tutorial
