Web-based platform
G-OnRamp provides an integrated, web-based, graphical interface for performing large scale bioinformatics analyses.
Designed for any genome
G-OnRamp is designed to work with any eukaryotic genomes.
Reproducible workflow
G-OnRamp record all the steps in the analysis workflow (e.g., tool parameters, data conversions) so that you can apply the same workflow to other eukaryotic genomes.
Share your results
The G-OnRamp analysis history (datasets, tools, and parameter settings) can be shared publicly or only with your colleagues.
You can incorporate additional Galaxy tools and modify the G-OnRamp workflow (e.g., tool parameters) according to your needs.
Multiple deployment options
G-OnRamp analysis can be done on the cloud (e.g., Amazon EC2) or on the a local virtual machine (e.g., VirtualBox) instance

GEP + Galaxy = G-OnRamp

The G-OnRamp project combines two successful and long-running projects—the Genomics Education Partnership (GEP) and the Galaxy Project. It aims to create an integrated, web-based, and scalable environment that enables biologists to utilize large genomic datasets for the interactive annotation of any eukaryotic genome.
