Uses existing tools from the Galaxy ToolShed, as well as providing additional wrappers and tools that are required to run the workflow. GeneSeqToFamily represents the Ensembl Compara pipeline as a set of interconnected Galaxy tools, so they can be run interactively within the Galaxy’s user-friendly workflow environment while still providing the flexibility to tailor the analysis by changing configurations and tools if necessary. Additional tools allow users to subsequently visualise gene families, produced using the workflow, using the Aequatus.js interactive tool, which has been developed as part of the Aequatus software project.
