Galaxy is an open platform for supporting data intensive research.

Its goal is to develop and maintain a system that enables researchers without informatics expertise to perform computational analyses through the web. A user interacts with Galaxy through the web by uploading and analyzing the data. The advantage of the University of Tartu Galaxy is that the data is processed in a local cluster and in a secure environment. Thus, you can work with sensitive data without fear of stealing it.

If you are planning to launch jobs on big NGS datasets, please contact us first for support on tool profiling and resource allocation.

If you haven’t used Galaxy before, please watch a 10-minute introductory video.
