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.


The European Galaxy server

The European Galaxy server is maintained primarily by the Freiburg Galaxy Team in collaboration with other academic groups across Europe and with the US Galaxy team. Please check our Terms of Service and data retention police before using the server. We offer thousands of tools, increased quota on temporary basis, and compute infrastructure for trainers through Training Infrastructure as a Service (TIaaS).


The European Galaxy community participates in several projects at the European, national and regional levels.


To address the needs of scientific & local communities, we offer customized Galaxy frontpages.


Have you used the European Galaxy server for your data analysis?


The European Galaxy team is distributed across different countries in Europe.
