Hi Galaxy Tool developers! I have started to integrate the HOMER suite into Galaxy. My initial attempt can be found here: Currently, we make use of: - Tool Shed definitions of all required 3rd Party Software - datatype definitions - loc files to define different HOMER datasets - macros - compostite datatypes (html output) I think that project can be a good start to learn Galaxy Tool development with all its simple and enhanced features. Also HOMER is a complex suite and you can add small and really big features if you like. If you are interested but did not have any experience in Tool development, do not hesitate to ask. I will try to help and explain as much as I can. For the beginning I included only 3 tools, and only one of them with a bunch of parameters. So there are many things to do ... If anyone is interested in leaning Galaxy Tool development and want to contribute. Fell free to join and contact me. Cheers, Bjoern P.S. I do not mind to merge my changes to the already existing repository from Kevin, but I was not able to contact him.

 Bjoern Gruening  is this still open for joining? I am usually working on usage of tools and writing custom codes for different experimental sets, I would like to also join hands in software development , I have earlier worked in development projects prior to my PhD joining. So I would like to do it again and work in parallel both on research analysis and software development. If it is still on please let me know and what languages are used and how can I help. I do not have experience on development with C or C++, my short term development project was on Perl and then I have been working mainly with shell, awk, sed and python but I have not used these for development projects. I would like to learn and join hands if you are still taking in. I am currently pursuing my PhD .

Yes, this is still valid. You should be interested in Galaxy and NGS releated research. To get started get a test Galaxy instance running on your computer and try out the already existing HOMER tools.

Hi Bjoern,

Is Homer wrapping onging? We have a user group here interested in using the suite within Galaxy. I could potentially contribute wrappers for anything they want that's not yet wrapped.
