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.

Events

Oct 31 - Dec 19Analysis of biological data with Galaxy

Learn how to use Galaxy in YOUR research

Feb 6 - Feb 10Single-cell RNA-seq analysis using Galaxy

Participants will be guided through the droplet-based scRNA-seq analysis pipelines from raw reads to trajectories.

Apr 25 - Apr 26Galaxy Introduction for Life Scientists

This 1.5-day course will give a general introduction on the galaxy web-page structure, how to import data, run tools, share analyses and build workflows. Participants will run a whole NGS analysis using an RNA-seq dataset as an example.

Our services

The Freiburg Galaxy Team is offering several services to enable reproducible and accessible research for everyone:

Training

We regularly provide workshops.

But we cannot always meet capacity, so we've put all of our training materials online. This has become a community project with people from all over the world contributing training materials.

Topics include: variant analysis, transcriptomics, metagenomics, epigenetics, and many more!
