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 French Galaxy server

The French Galaxy server is maintained by IFB NNCR Cluster Task force. Please check our Terms of Use 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 following regional platforms, members of IFB, are involved in the maintenance and development of


Ask for help, tools, or temporary increase of quota on our support forum


If you are organising a training session, you can book computing resources using the TIaaS system
