What is Galaxy?
Galaxy is a well-known open-source platform for FAIR data analysis that enables users to:
- access and collect data from reference databases, external repositories and other data sources;
- 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;
- capture the metadata of data analyses, thus ensuring their reproducibility.
Galaxy supports scientists to perform accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational analysis. The Galaxy Community is actively involved in helping the ecosystem improve and sharing scientific discoveries.
