Galaxy Platform For Accessible, Reproducible And Collaborative Biomedical Analyses: 2019 Update

High-throughput data creation technologies, especially ‘next-generation’ DNA sequencing, have ushered in widespread and disruptive changes to biomedical research. Making sense of the large data sets produced by these technologies requires sophisticated computational and statistical methods, as well as substantial computational power. This has led to an acute turmoil in life sciences, as experts without informatics training try to perform computation-dependent analyses.

Since 2005, the Galaxy task has worked to deal with this problem by providing a framework that makes advanced computational tools useful by non-experts. Galaxy seeks to make data-intensive research more accessible, clear and reproducible by providing a Web-based environment in which users can perform computational analyses and have all the details automatically monitored for later inspection, publication, or reuse.

In this record we highlight lately added features allowing biomedical analyses on a big level. Multi-step analyses can be carried out by working tools in succession, and Galaxy preserves the complete provenance of every evaluation step (2,3). By bridging the distance between tool researchers and developers, Galaxy helps both constituencies accelerate their research.

The Public Galaxy Server: This is the focus of the paper. The website provides significant CPU and disk space, which make it possible to investigate large datasets. The Galaxy software is highly customizable and integrates with a wide variety of compute environments ranging from laptop computers to clusters to compute clouds. A Galaxy instance administrator may then install a tool and everything necessary dependencies within an entirely computerized way through the Galaxy Web user interface or API.

The Galaxy Community: Finally, one of the most important the different parts of the task is the Galaxy community. Galaxy has a broad community of users, tool programmers, and administrators who maintain Galaxy situations. Developments in the Galaxy community are defined below in section Culture and Community. Web-based genome analysis platforms are a long-term and growing section of research. Early platforms for doing genome analyses in a Browser include Taverna (4,5), GenePattern (6), and Galaxy. Recently, folio (7), Epiviz (8), the Genome Modeling System (9), and ZENBU (10) have been developed for carrying out genome evaluation and visualization in a Web browser.

Galaxy’s large set of available tools, the powerful computing resources offered through the Public Galaxy Server and its large community arranged it aside from other analysis systems. Three broad goals drive the introduction of Galaxy. First, Galaxy seeks to increase access to complicated computational analyses for all those scientists, including those with limited or no programming knowledge. Galaxy’s Web-based graphical interface (GUI) helps it be easy to do everything needed for relatively large data analyses. Using the Galaxy GUI, users can upload their own data or retrieve data from open public databases, choose analysis tools, established tool inputs and variables and run tools.
