Hi everyone, my name is Samir. I am doing my PhD in Biochemistry at Universite de Montreal. I would like to add a tool called HiFive to my Galaxy browser to analyze 5C data. Do I have to install Galaxy locally in order to add a tool, or is there a way to do it on the web-based version?
Install the tool from the Tool Shed in a local or cloud Galaxy. This analysis will probably take more compute than most personal computers can provide. A local server or Cloudman instance with more dedicated resources would be a good choice. AWS offers educational grants to help cover their costs when using a cloud - the application process is quick and painless. (Galaxy itself is always free).
That said, publicly hosted Galaxy instances have the available tool set curated by the groups that run them, often targetted on a specific analysis workflow. You can review the list below to see if any offer the tools of interest (with sufficient data quota for the project) as a possible alternative.
Best, Jen, Galaxy team
Hi Jen, thank you for your reply. I am relatively new to galaxy and bioinformatics in general. How do I load a tool into the cloud galaxy. I found the tool on toolshed, but I am not sure which type of file I am supposed to install, and where to install it.
Follow the instructions here for a local Galaxy: http://getgalaxy.org
If you decide to use a cloud Galaxy instead, see here: http://usegalaxy.org/cloud
In short, you set up an admin account on your instance then use specific admin functions to install tools.
