Attending this event?
The 2018 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2018) and Bioinformatics Open Source Conference 2018 (BOSC2018) are joining together for a unified event to be held in Portland, Oregon, United States, June 25-30, 2018.  The event features two days of training, a two day meeting, and finish with two or four days of intense collaboration at the GCC OBF CollaborationFest Core and Encore events.  The meeting will feature joint and parallel sessions, and shared keynotes, poster and demo sessions, and social events.  Colocating GCC and BOSC will bring together the widest possible community of bioinformatics developers and practitioners into a single place.  At this event the whole will be greater than the sum of the parts.

The event is organized by Oregon Health & Science University and will be held at Reed College, a small liberal arts college in Portland. Conference housing is available in two Reed College residence hall complexesPortland is a vibrant city in the American Northwest, close to the Cascade Mountains, the Oregon Coast, and the Columbia River.

This workshop will introduce the concepts behind transcriptomics with NGS data and how to analyze this data in Galaxy. Specifically, this workshop will focus on de novo transcriptome reconstruction of RNA-seq data with the following goals:

  • comprehensive identification of all transcripts across an experiment
  • appropriately annotating classes of transcripts
  • generating abundance estimates across a transcriptome
  • significance testing of differentially expressed transcripts
  • visualisation of reads and transcript structures

Second of 3 sessions in the Introduction to Using Galaxy series.


  • a general knowledge of Galaxy (for example, you should be familiar with the material in Galaxy 101 or have attended Introduction to Galaxy).
  • a wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser. Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari will work best.
