Analysis and Tool Deployment

This activity focuses on building the microbial GVL and deploying analysis tools within that environment.

Building on the mature Genomics Virtual Lab ( platform, a specialised set of microbial genomics-focussed analysis and visualisation tools will be integrated into the Galaxy platform. These will provide the initial functionality required for primary/secondary analysis of genomics and transcriptomics data, assembly of microbial genomes using the distributed PacBio SmrtPortal tool suite, annotation of assembled genomes, and visualisation of the annotated genomes and differential gene expression analyses. This managed Microbial GVL is available at

Tools chosen to be deployed were identified through the requirements gathering phase. Additional tools can be deployed if there is a research need.

Please contact us if there are additional tools you would like deployed.
