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.

Training Infrastructure Feedback from Hans-Rudolf Hotz and Lucille Delisle

After 2 years running the SIB "Galaxy Introduction for Life Scientists" course only online, we were super happy to stand in front of a crowd and meet again the students in person.

Towards a sustainable storage, enabling co-financing of public infrastructure

Research groups and networks can include their own storage into the European Galaxy server and decide about quota and data policies.

Data transfer

For large files, FTP upload is also available on this server. Connect to port 21 with the same credentials you use to log into Galaxy. Once uploaded, open the Galaxy file upload menu, and click on the Choose FTP file button to import the files into your history.

If you want to analyse data already available on the GenOuest cluster, you can use the GenoLink or GenoCopy tools available in the "Get Data" section.

If you want to transfer files to the GenOuest cluster, use the GenoSend tool in the "Send Data" section.


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!
