Abstract

Biomedical data exploration requires integrative analyses of large datasets using a diverse ecosystem of tools. For more than a decade, the Galaxy project (https://galaxyproject.org) has provided researchers with a web-based, user-friendly, scalable data analysis framework complemented by a rich ecosystem of tools (https://usegalaxy.org/toolshed) used to perform genomic, proteomic, metabolomic, and imaging experiments. Galaxy can be deployed on the cloud (https://launch.usegalaxy.org), institutional computing clusters, and personal computers, or readily used on a number of public servers (e.g., https://usegalaxy.org). In this paper, we present our plan and progress towards creating Galaxy-as..
