Using Galaxy for NGS sample submission and tracking for service providers

Over at the Blue Collar Bioinformatics 
Our group at Massachusetts General Hospital approached these challenges by developing a sample submission and tracking interface on top of the web-based Galaxy data integration platform. It provides a front end for biologists to enter their sample details and monitor the status of a project. For lab technicians doing the sample preparation and sequencing work, the system tracks sample states via a set of progressive queues providing data entry points at each step of the process. On the back end, an automated analysis pipeline processes data as it arrives off the sequencer, uploading the results back into Galaxy.
This post will show videos of the interface in action, describe installation and extension of the system, and detail the implementation architecture.
