It provides next-generation sequencing (NGS) tools and workflows for short-read mapping, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, metagenomics, variant analysis, visualization, and support for Galaxy in the cloud. There are hundreds of local installs, and *over 80 publicly accessible servers https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/PublicGalaxyServers* around the world.
*Abstract submission https://gcc2016.iu.edu/abstracts/index.php** for oral presentations closes April 8. *Abstract submission for posters and computer demonstrations closes May 20.
