How to find tools

Tools installed and availble on the Galaxy server in use

  • At the top of the left tool panel, type in a tool name or datatype into the tool search box.
  • Shorter keywords find more choices.
  • Tools can also be directly browsed by category in the tool panel.

Can't find the tool you want?

  • Try searching the Tool Shed.
  • New tools are added all the time that can be used in local or cloud Galaxy instances.
  • If the tool you want to use is not wrapped yet, it could be.

  • Requests to wrap tools can be made by opening an issue and assigning the tag tool request at the IUC master repository
