Welcome to the Galaxy Community Hub

The meeting point where you can find curated documentation for all things Galaxy

Galaxy is an open-source platform for FAIR data analysis that enables users to:

  • use tools from various domains (that can be plugged into workflows) through its graphical web interface.
  • run code in interactive environments (RStudio, Jupyter...) along with other tools or workflows.
  • manage data by sharing and publishing results, workflows, and visualizations.
  • ensure reproducibility by capturing the necessary information to repeat and understand data analyses.

The Galaxy Community is actively involved in helping the ecosystem improve and sharing scientific discoveries.


GTN Smörgåsbord 2: 14-18 March, join a free, global, week-long Galaxy Training event covering everything from RNA-Seq, Single Cell, Proteomics, SARS-CoV-2 and more!  This year will include Galaxy Admin Training.


GTN Smörgåsbord 2: 14-18 MarchA second Smörgåsbord with even more Galaxy Training

How does the GTN stay FAIR and Collaborative?Find out how contributing simple markdown tutorials can result in fantastically FAIR training.
