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

Feb 26 - Mar 1Hackathon Image Analysis in Galaxy

This hackathon addresses the improvement of Galaxy for image analysis

Mar 4 - Mar 8Workshop on High-Throughput Data Analysis with Galaxy

This course introduces scientists to the data analysis platform Galaxy. The course is a beginner course; there is no requirement of any programming skills.

Mar 5 - Mar 6Awareness in Data Management and Analysis for Industry and Research

Join us at BioNT, for a 2-day online workshop. Everyone manages their data, but the question is, how well? In this two-day workshop, you will learn how to manage your data properly to make it reusable in the long term, to make your analyses reproducible, and to make your processes transparent. You will learn the basic concepts of research data management, including the FAIR Data Principles. You will also learn about relevant policies, draft a data management plan and learn about the use and benefits of electronic lab notebooks. By the end of this workshop, you will also be able to make your computational results trustworthy and reproducible. Registarion deadline is extended until the 25.02.2024.

Mar 11 - Mar 15Hackathon - Improving the annotation of Galaxy resources for microbial data analysis and beyond

This hackathon aims to improve the annotation of Galaxy resources for microbial data analysis and beyond

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!
