Getting started with de novo assembly in Galaxy

This training material provides an overview of tools for de novo transcriptome assembly available on Galaxy-qld. It contains background on the theory of assembly as well as examples of tools usage through links to histories published on Galaxy-qld:

de novo transcript assembly with Trinity
Remove spaces from read names in FASTQ
Count reads with eXpress
Coverage for assembled transcripts
eXpress with sorted BWA-MEM alignment
Counting reads with the latest RSEM (February 2016)
Counting reads with Salmon

Getting data into Galaxy-qld

This training material shows how to put user data into Galaxy-qld though different channels: though a link, from a password protected ftp server, using ftp and ftp client software, from aarnet CloudStor, using GenomeSpace Importer and Exporter tools. Examples of public data usage include built-in data such as aligner indices and SnpEff database, Galaxy Data Libraries, direct import from UCSC Table Browser and EMBL-EBI European Nucleotide Archive.
