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.
