__NOTITLE__

Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research.

  • Accessibility: Galaxy enables users without programming experience to easily specify parameters and run tools and workflows.
  • Reproducibility: Galaxy captures all information necessary so that any user can repeat and understand a complete computational analysis.
  • Transparency: Galaxy enables users to share and publish analyses via the web and create Pages--interactive, web-based documents that describe a complete analysis.

Galaxy is open source for all organizations. The public Galaxy service makes analysis tools, genomic data, tutorial demonstrations, persistent workspaces, and publication services available to any scientist that has access to the Internet. Local Galaxy servers can be set up by downloading the Galaxy application and customizing it to meet particular needs.

2011 Galaxy Community Conference

http://galaxy.psu.edu/gcc2011/

The 2011 Galaxy Community Conference was held 25-26 May, at the Conference Centre De Werelt in Lunteren, The Netherlands. This year the conference was sponsored and hosted by the Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre (NBIC). There were almost 150 registrations and the conference featured two full days of presentations and discussion on extending Galaxy to use new tools and data sources, deploying Galaxy at your organization, and best practices for using Galaxy to further your research.

Demo & Screencasts

Try the public Galaxy server. You can create a login and save your work, or use it anonymously. Short screencasts on how to use Galaxy for several example tasks are also available.

Requirements

  • Python version 2.4 or higher
  • Mac OS X currently requires Universal "Fat" Python 2.4 (the Python 2.4 build officially supported by Apple) from http://macpython.org/ (direct link)
  • Galaxy runs fine in most Posix environments. It is not currently supported on Windows platforms, but necessary Python eggs can be built by those desiring to host it on Windows.

Downloads

Galaxy aims to be a zero configuration entirely self-contained system that provides a lightweight webserver, an embedded database and a multi-threaded job manager. All tools (and their parameters) can be specified via simple XML based configuration files. Galaxy download and installation information is located here.
