Workflow for web-based analysis of large genome and epigenome datasets. This figure outlines a workflow for the analysis of genome and epigenome data using publicly available web services. Initially, the user uploads a newly generated dataset into a genome browser, which visualizes the data and facilitates hypothesis generation by manual inspection (left box). Next, data can be processed with a genome calculator such as Galaxy, in order to extract interesting regions for in-depth analysis (center box). Finally, genome analysis tools such as EpiGRAPH facilitate the search for significant associations with genome annotation data and enable bioinformatic prediction of genomic regions with similar characteristics as the input dataset (right box).
