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 server 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.

2013 Galaxy Community Conference
The 2013 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2013) will be held June 30 through July 2 at the University of Oslo in Oslo, Norway. GCC2013 will feature a Tutorial Day followed by two days of presentations, discussions, lightning talks, breakouts, and keynotes 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.
Galaxy download and installation information is at GetGalaxy.org.
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.
Please visit the Galaxy Wiki for full documentation on all aspects of getting, installing, and using Galaxy.
