This Focus on a Feature has finished. You can find the recording here:

To follow along, you can find the data I used in Galaxy here.

Previous Focus on a Feature recordings can be found here.



  1. Introduction to Galaxy
  2. Finding and loading data sets from the Sequence Read Archive
  3. Quality checking and grooming of NGS data.
  4. Aligning NGS RNA-Seq data.
  5. Visualizing RNA-Seq alignments in IGB

Integrated Genome Browser (IGB)

IGB provides an advanced, highly customizable environment for exploring and analyzing large-scale genomic data sets. Using IGB you can visually analyze RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, and many other genomic projects. The best part of all is that IGB can be used to produce publication quality images from genome scale data sets, and is provided FREE.

Good tool to use! Thanks for the information. Just one question, can IGB be integrated into Galaxy?

Hi CikAlal,

Great question! IGB is fully integrated into Galaxy. Once you've generated a file in Galaxy the option to "display in IGB" will appear. Clicking on the link will automatically load the data into IGB (you will need to have IGB running).
