Open Bioinformatics Reference Data for Galaxy

bioinformatics biology genetic genomic life sciences reference index


This dataset provides genomic reference data and software packages for use with Galaxy and Bioconductor applications. The reference data is available for hundreds of reference genomes and has been formatted for use with a variety of tools. The available configuration files make this data easily incorporable with a local Galaxy server without additional data preparation. Additionally, Bioconductor's AnnotationHub and ExperimentHub data are provided for use via R packages through which the data can be downloaded and installed into any R environment.
