What is Galaxy and why could it be interesting to me?

Galaxy is a web-based, open source, data integration and analysis platform for life science research. The core pillars of the application are:

  • Accessibility: enable bench scientists to create bioinformatics analyses
  • Reproducibility: facilitate computational methods to be completely easily reproducible
  • Transparency: enable easy sharing and publishing of research data and analyses

A sample instance of the application that is free to use is available at: usegalaxy.org
