Galaxy Community Hub

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

  • Accessible: programming experience is not required to easily upload data, run complex tools and workflows, and visualize results.
  • Reproducible: Galaxy captures information so that you don't have to; any user can repeat and understand a complete computational analysis, from tool parameters to the dependency tree.
  • Transparent: Users share and publish their histories, workflows, and visualisations via the web.
  • Community centered: Our inclusive and diverse users (developers, educators, researchers, clinicians, etc.) are empowered to share their findings.

Welcome to the Galaxy Community Hub, where you'll find community curated documentation of all things Galaxy.


COVID updates: B.1.617.2 detected in COG-UK data from the beginning of April – We checked the COG-UK data to see if we’d find representative samples of B.1.617.2 (one of the Indian lineages, and a Variant of Concern).

Exploring and monitoring COVID-19 variants with Galaxy – Galaxy Europe has developed a pipeline to automatically create COVID-19 variant information and statistics from raw sequencing data generated by COVID-19 Genomics UK Consortium (COG-UK).
