Spanish Galaxy Community Meetup: 18 December, Barcelona

Galaxy Session at III Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Symposium

There will be a session at the end of the III Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Symposium being held in Barcelona on 18 December:

  • where users and developers can, not only share information and code, but also plan how to coordinate for future Galaxy workshops and other activities. Chairs of this session are Toni Espinosa (UAB) and Gonzalo Vera (CRAG).

See the announcement PDF and the announcement email for further details.

  • Links:

  • Domain/Purpose:

    • Analyzing RNA-seq Data for Agricultural Animal Species.
  • Comments:

    • From the portal landing page:

      • The goal of this project is to develop a web portal with integrated tools for RNA-seq based gene expression analysis for agricultural animals.
        • improve genome annotation of agricultural animal species, including (but not limiting to) cattle, pig, chicken, turkey, horse, sheep, and goat as well as catfish;
        • develop and integrate needed bioinformatics tools and pipelines, visualization interfaces, and statistical methods;
        • build a web portal that enable RNA-seq based transcriptomics analysis in aforementioned animal species.

Planemo 0.19.0 - 0.20.0

Planemo saw a regular Oort cloud of activity in November with 2 releases.

Planemo is a set of command-line utilities to assist in building tools for the Galaxy project. Planemo 0.20.0 is the most recent release. See the release history.

Other Releases



  • This is the most complete update of the Galaxy on the Cloud platform to date with all the cloud components being built from the ground up. See the CHANGELOG for a complete set of changes or just give it a try: see the all new Getting Started documentation.

  • Security Advisories

    • Three security vulnerabilities were announced and patched in August. The Galaxy Committers have released a number of fixes which have been rolled in to affected versions of Galaxy dating back to the 14.10 release.

  • Pulsar

    • Pulsar 0.5.0 was released in May. Pulsar is a Python server application that allows a Galaxy server to run jobs on remote systems (including Windows) without requiring a shared mounted file systems. Unlike traditional Galaxy job runners - input files, scripts, and config files may be transferred to the remote system, the job is executed, and the results are transferred back to the Galaxy server - eliminating the need for a shared file system.


    blend4j v0.1.2

    • blend4j v0.1.2 was released in December 2014. blend4j is a JVM partial reimplemenation of the Python library bioblend for interacting with Galaxy, CloudMan, and BioCloudCentral.
