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.
USC Galaxy Server vs. Docker-Galaxy
USC Galaxy server is a full-fledged Galaxy platform.
Based on January 2019 official release (v 19.01)
Faster data upload/download within USC network
Shorter analysis queues
Tools offered through Partek Flow are purposely removed
Docker-Galaxy is a lighter version of Galaxy that can be installed on your own computer.
Based on January 2018 official release (v 18.01)
Analyze sensitive data on your own computer
Heavily customized toolbox focusing on ChIP data analysis
Requires a powerful computer (fast CPU, large RAM and a minimum of 200GB storage for installation) for installation and data analysis.
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.
