Galaxy is an open source, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research. It integrates hundreds of popular statistical and bioinformatical tools for genomic sequencing data analysis.
Accessing Galaxy public server is hindered by the data file size limit, slow speed, as well as data security. To help USC users to truly take advantage of this powerful platform, we have implemented a local instance for campus-wide access, as well as a docker build version that allows users to install and use the Galaxy on their own desktop and even laptop computers.
Galaxy provides a platform for hundreds of cutting-edge tools that can be used to perform many types of analysis, particularly for next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. Both our local Galaxy server and Galaxy docker build contain many very useful and well-cited open access tools, which nicely complement our licensed commercial software.
There are three ways to use our customized Galaxy:
1. On your own lab/office computers
2. On workstation computers in the libraries
The Docker Build Galaxy has been installed on multiple workstation computers at:
3. USC Galaxy Server (Coming November 2017)
