BCC2020 is online, global, and affordable. The meeting and training are now done, and the CoFest is under way.

The 2020 Bioinformatics Community Conference brings together the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) and the Galaxy Community Conference into a single event featuring training, a meeting, and a CollaborationFest. Events run from July 17 through July 25, and is held in both the eastern and western hemispheres.

Schedule, Slides, TutorialVideo

This session will demonstrate Galaxy use for bioinformatics tasks routinely employed in breeding for crop improvement, such as conducting GWAS, identifying trait-specific markers for candidate genes across crop cultivars, and performing genomic selection. The crop-specific datasets and tools in two public galaxy instances, Rice Galaxy (https://galaxy.irri.org)  and Excellence In Breeding Platform Galaxy (http://galaxy-demo.excellenceinbreeding.org/) will be used. These instances are being merged into one "Crop Galaxy", soon to be available from (https://cropgalaxy.excellenceinbreeding.org).

Our tutorials are available from this GItHub Wiki site: https://tinyurl.com/y2w2m9mn. This home page links to the tutorials for GWAS (Dmytro), SNP data tools for candidate genes (Ramil), and Genomic selection (Venice). Video recordings of the sessions will be made available after the workshop. Our presentation (Google slide deck) is here https://tinyurl.com/yyryyzn9.

  • Basic knowledge of molecular breeding 
  • Familiarity with Galaxy or some experience using Galaxy interface
  • A laptop with a modern web browser (Google Chrome - preferred, Firefox and Safari will work best).
