Developed for bioinformaticists and non-bioinformaticists alike, galaxy leverages powerul tools to perform complex genomic and metagenomic analysis. Galaxy is designed to produce useful and reproducible data.
At its core, galaxy allows users to generate and share workflows that would be otherwise useless on other computing infrastructures. With its ability to work with nearly any command-line application galaxy is ideal for developing and testing analysis pipelines for any project.
Galaxy is not solely for bioinformaticians. Many galaxy instances have been developed to allow students to become familiar with the sometimes daunting task of working with the command-line. FAU specifically provides a demo docker image which can be used to develop and deploy your own galaxy instance.
