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.
2014 Galaxy Community Conference
Galaxy Community Conferences are an opportunity to participate in presentations, discussions, poster sessions, lightning talks and breakouts, all about high-throughput biology and the tools that support it. The conference will also includes a Training Day offering in-depth topic coverage, across several concurrent sessions. See the GCC2013 web site for an idea of what happens at a Galaxy Community Conference. The GCC2013 site includes links to slides and videos for all accepted talks.
Galaxy Australasia Workshop 2014 (GAW 2014)
The 1st Galaxy Australasia Workshop 2014 (GAW 2014) will be held in Melbourne, Australia on 24 and 25th March 2014.
The Galaxy Australasia Workshop is a great opportunity to participate in two full days of presentations, discussions, poster sessions, keynotes and lightning talks, all about ways of using Galaxy for high-throughput biology, imaging and other scientific applications. The workshop will also include Training Sessions taught by Galaxy developers and master users. GAW 2014 will run 24 and 25th March, immediately preceding Computational and Simulation Sciences and eResearch in Melbourne.
GAW 2014 will also include poster session, keynote speakers.
Registration is open. Registration is also free, but space is limited.
Participants who wish to give presentations or present posters (potentially with technical demonstrations) that showcase use of Galaxy should submit an abstract and brief one-paragraph bio by February 15th, 2014. Submitters will be notified by February 28th. Speakers, panelists, and poster presenters will be selected by the program committee based on relevance to symposium objectives and workshop balance.

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.
Full documentation on all aspects of getting, installing, and using Galaxy is available from the Galaxy Wiki.
