Galaxy is an open-source application to enable 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. Galaxy interacts with underlying computational infrastructure (servers that run the analyses and disks that store the data) without exposing it to the user.
EiB has set up a Galaxy instance to allow users to make use of genotypic data tools from EiB, the Genomics Open-source Breeding Informatics Initiative (GOBII) and the High Throughput Genotyping Project HTPG. This service is available through an online portal.
