The Genomics Virtual Laboratory (GVL) project, funded by NeCTAR, is building scalable infrastructure, workflow platforms and community resources for Australian genomics researchers. At this stage, the GVL comprises: a prototype workflow management system based on the Galaxy framework, a bioinformatics toolkit (for command-line users), and a visualisation service based on the UCSC Genome Browser, all implemented on the NeCTAR Research Cloud; and a developing set of tutorials and exemplar workflows targetted at common high throughput genomics tasks. In this talk I will demonstrate GVL capabilities and discuss progress and the GVL roadmap.
