  • 2012 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2012), July 25-27, Chicago


    We are pleased to announce that early registration for the 2012 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2012) is now open. GCC2012 will be held July 25-27, at the UIC Forum, in Chicago, Illinois. The conference will feature two full days of presentations, discussions, lightning talks, and breakouts. We have also added a new full day of training this year, featuring 3 parallel tracks with four workshops each, covering seven different topics.

    The Galaxy Community Conference is geared towards:
    • Sequencing core facility staff
    • Bioinformatics core staff
    • Bioinformatics tool and workflow developers
    • Bioinformatics focused principal investigators and researchers
    • Data producers
    • Power bioinformatics users


    This event focuses on integrating, analyzing, and sharing the diverse and very large datasets that are now typical in biomedical research. GCC2012 is an opportunity to share best practices with, and learn from, a large community of researchers and support staff who are facing the challenges of data-intensive biology. Galaxy is an open web-based platform for data intensive biomedical research that is widely used and deployed at research organizations of all sizes and around the world.

    Registration is very affordable, particularly for students and post-docs, and you can can save an additional 40% by registering on or before June 11.

    Conference lodging can also be booked now. Low-cost rooms have been reserved on the UIC campus. You can also stay at the conference hotel, at a substantial discount for conference attendees. There are a limited rooms available in both, and you are encouraged to register early, if you would like to take advantage of these.

    Abstract submission is also open, from now through April 16. Abstract submissions on any topic of interest to the Galaxy community are strongly encouraged. See the Abstracts page for details.

    Hoping to see you in Chicago this July,

    Dave Clements, on behalf of the GCC2012 Organizing Committee


    PS: Please help get the word out! A flyer and graphics are available.

    Some updates since the initial announcement:

    1) A day of tutorials has been added to the agenda this year. The GCC2012 Training Day has 3 parallel tracks, each featuring four, 90 minute workshops and covering between and 7 and 12 different topics. Please take a few minutes to vote on topics that you would like to see presented: The survey ends this Friday, May 18, so please provide your feedback now.
    The 2012 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2012) Training Day needs your help! Training Day offers 90 minute training sessions in three parallel tracks throughout the day for a total of 12 sessions. We need your input on how to best allocate those sessions to topics. Please take a few minutes to indicate your top choices for what you would like to see covered on the GCC2012 Training Day. See http://wiki.g2.bx.psu.edu/Events/GCC2012/TrainingDay#Workshops for a description of the first 7 suggested topics. All workshops will have a hands-on component.


    2) The GCC2012 early registration deadline is June 11, which is just 4 weeks away. Registering early saves 36 to 42% on registration costs, and allows you to book discounted conference lodging before it fills up. Register now at


    3) A list of confirmed speakers and abstracts are now available on the conference web site. This list is not yet finished, but will give you a pretty accurate idea of the range of topics that will be discussed during the meeting.



    Hope to see you in Chicago!

      Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
      by seqadmin


      Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

      Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
      by seqadmin


      Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
