Abstract: Galaxy is a web based tool that allows users to input a variety of datasets locally available or from public sources, including genome wide tracks from the UCSC Browser and BioMart, and manipulate and analyze these datasets in a free and publicly available point and click environment. A variety of types of sequence/text manipulation tools are available. These include a variety of common Linux/Unix type functions and all of the EMBOSS tools. Its developing role is in enabling a variety of genomics level manipulations on custom large datasets, including tools for Next Generation Sequencing data (RNAseq, ChIPseq). There are also some statistical and phylogenetic tools available. Galaxy has a workflow generation capability so that users can set up custom pipelines with user-set parameters based on tools within Galaxy, save, share, and re-use them.
