About Access Restrictions to Electronic Resources

Access and use of electronic resources made available by the Becker Medical Library are governed by license agreements between the School of Medicine and publishers or third parties. Several of the electronic resources carry some restriction on their use. Access may be restricted by user location, number of concurrent users, and/or password.

In short, most people experience access limitations based on the network to which their computer is connected. Below is a quick breakdown of what can be accessed from various networks.

Galaxy Biomedical Research Platform Now Available at Washington University

Becker Medical Library and the Washington University Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC) have announced the release of a locally-based WUSTL instance of Galaxy - an open, web-based platform for data intensive biomedical research. The WUSTL CHPC Galaxy instance is hosted on the CHPC cluster and is now freely available to Washington University researchers.

Efforts to launch a local instance of Galaxy have been underway since the library hosted an extremely popular Galaxy training session in May and attendees expressed a strong desire to have easier and more efficient access to the platform’s tools and resources. The library partnered with the CHPC whose state of the art, shared computing resources offered the robust hosting platform needed to optimize Galaxy. For more information about CHPC services and resources visit the CHPC website.

As described on the Galaxy Project website, Galaxy provides researchers with an accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research platform.

  • Accessible: Users without programming experience can easily specify parameters and run tools and workflows.

  • Reproducible: Galaxy captures information so that any user can repeat and understand a complete computational analysis.

  • Transparent: Users share and publish analyses via the web and create Pages, interactive, web-based documents that describe a complete analysis.

To learn more, visit the WUSTL CHPC Galaxy information page on the Becker Library website or contact Marcy Vana at Becker Library.
