BoF: Accessing NCBI Data in Galaxy

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) has significantly improved access to sequence and metadata by reimagining our programmatic and web interfaces, data formats for SRA and Genbank and cloud-based tools (e.g. ElasticBLAST). NCBI wants to update users on two new initiatives:

  1. moving the complete Sequence Read Archive (>14 PB ) to AWS ODP and 
  2. improving web, command-line and API access to GenBank data through NCBI Datasets

We welcome you to a discussion of any and all use cases for working with the new data access options!
