Data Driven Reseach for Everyone
Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biological research.
- Accessible: Users can easily run tools without writing code or using the CLI; all via a user-friendly web interface.
- Reproducible: Galaxy captures all the metadata from an analysis, making it completely reproducible.
- Transparent: Users share and publish analyses via interactive pages that can enhance analyses with user annotations.
- Scalable: Galaxy can run on anything, from a laptop, to large clusters, to the cloud
UseGalaxy.org.au: The Australian Galaxy instance
- Thousands of documented and maintained tools
- Free to use
- 600 GB for Australian based users (100GB for others)
- On demand training capacity
And even more!
The Galaxy Community maintains a wide variety of training materials at https://training.galaxyproject.org
Topics include: variant analysis, transcriptomics, metagenomics, epigenetics, and many more!
We are aiming to maintain high competency and provide high quality data analysis services to all our Galaxy users.
Therefore we request that you acknowledge this service by including the members of the Australian Galaxy Team as co-authors if they have made a significant intellectual and/or organizational contribution to the work described (conceptualization, design, data analysis, data interpretation and/or input into drafting, revising or writing any portion of the manuscript).
If you use Galaxy Australia in your research, please cite the GVL paper:
Afgan E, Sloggett C, Goonasekera N, Makunin I, Benson D, Crowe M, Gladman S, Kowsar Y, Pheasant M, Horst R, Lonie A. Genomics Virtual Laboratory: A Practical Bioinformatics Workbench for the Cloud. PLoS One. 2015 Oct 26;10(10):e0140829.
Additional funding of projects and/or provision of material expenses are welcome as well, to help support our growing Galaxy community in Australia.
We want you to feel that usegalaxy.org.au is a reliable service, so we are promising to give you advanced warning (when possible) about upcoming downtimes or any events that might degrade the availability.
- This is a best effort, we will try and give as much warning as we possibly can
- But we cannot make any promise regarding downtime notices as some will be out of our control
- The numbers we provide here are rough estimates
|<5 minutes||possibly without notice|
|1 hour||1 day|
|1 day||1 week|
|1 week||1 month|
Galaxy Australia is administered by a team of academics from the Universities of Queensland and Melbourne. We work very closely with our colleagues from Galaxy Europe and the U.S. Galaxy Team. Galaxy Australia is a part of the usegalaxy.* ecosystem of shared resources and collaborations.
We make every effort to provide high uptime.
Sometimes we are able to achieve this, sometimes due to factors outside our control, our service is temporarily inaccessible.

User data on UseGalaxy.org.au (i.e. datasets, histories) will be available for a minimum of 13 weeks (90 days) as long as they are not deleted by the user. Once marked as deleted the datasets will be permanently removed within 10 days. If the user "purges" the dataset in the Galaxy, it will be removed immediately, permanently.
Registered users are allocated a 100GB disk quota to begin with. Registered users with an Australian research institute are allocated 600GB.
An extended quota can be requested for a limited time period in special cases.
Processed data will only be accessible during one browser session, using a cookie to identify your data. This cookie is not used for any other purposes (e.g. tracking or analytics.)
If UseGalaxy.org.au service is not accessed for 10 days, those datasets will be permanently deleted.
