November 2012 Galaxy Update

Galaxy Updates

Welcome to the November 2012 edition of Galaxy Update, a monthly summary of what is going on in the Galaxy community. Galaxy Updates complement the Galaxy Development News Briefs which accompany new Galaxy releases and focus on Galaxy code updates.

New Papers

These papers may be of interest to the Galaxy community:

These papers were among 41 new papers added to the Galaxy CiteULike group since the last Galaxy Update.

New Trello Issue Board

The Galaxy project has a new issue tracking system, implemented with Trello. To report an issue, fill out the form at http://galaxyproject.org/trello and submit (use markdown for formatting, if desired). You can also comment on and vote for issues directly on the Trello issue board itself.

The same guidelines for creating issues used previously apply here as well - report software issues and change requests, but get support and ask questions on the mailing list: galaxy-dev@bx.psu.edu.

All open galaxy-central bitbucket issues were imported and, though they still need to be sorted out, comments/voting on them are more than welcome. Our hope is that this issue tracker will be a more effective community interface than the Bitbucket issues were, with the voting features and simpler visibility.

Tool Shed Contributions

Several new repositories were added to the Galaxy Tool Shed in September.

  • cloudmap_variant_discovery_mapping: Map a mutation using in silico bulk segregant linkage analysis using variants that are already present in the mutant strain of interest.

  • riboPicker: Easy identification and removal of rRNA-like sequences

  • picard: Wrappers for the Picard SAM/BAM manipulation tools.

  • nebula: Tools suite for ChIP-seq data analysis tools from the Nebula Galaxy server.

  • sparql_galaxy: Execute an SPARQL query against an OWL ontology

  • cluster3: A Wrapper for the Cluster3.0 program, which implements "the most commonly used clustering methods for gene expression data analysis."

  • nebula: ChIP-seq data analysis tools from the Nebula Galaxy server.

  • sparql_galaxy: Execute a SPARQL query against an OWL ontology

New Distribution

The October 23, 2012 distribution includes an important security fix; integration with a new Trello Issue Board; Tool Shed direct updates; API fixes, tuneups, and brand-new methods to control libraries; multiple Admin changes enable better access to user data to solve problems; and updates to the Visualization tool set cover Trackster, Circster, and the new Scatter Plot tool.
