Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for data-intensive biomedical research and enables easy interactive analysis through the web on arbitrarily large data sets. The Galaxy framework is a major resource in achieving key research goals within the biological field. It provides next-generation sequencing (NGS) tools and workflows for short-read mapping, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, metagenomics, variant analysis, visualization, and support for Galaxy in the cloud. There are hundreds of local installs, and over 80 publicly accessible servers around the world.
