Galaxy Working Group

The Galaxy Working Group was established in 2015 to evaluate the usage of the online platform Galaxy in the ELIXIR Nodes, and its applications in ELIXIR platforms.

The group carried out a study identifying the usage of Galaxy in the Nodes and its application in the platforms and proposed a set of recommendations to the ELIXIR Heads of Nodes Committee (see Documents below).

This working group aims to build a network within ELIXIR and Europe of Galaxy administrators, developers and users.
