  • 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.

    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!

      A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
      by seqadmin

      ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

      Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
      by seqadmin
      Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

      The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
