Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for data intensive biomedical research.

WUSTL’s Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC), in collaboration with Becker Medical Library, has released a WUSTL instance of Galaxy that will process jobs on the CHPC cluster. The WUSTL Galaxy instance can be found here: WUSTL CHPC Galaxy.

Data storage within the WUSTL CHPC Galaxy instance is temporary. Each registered user will be able to access up to 50GB of space (up to 10GB for unregistered users), but datasets are not backed up and will be deleted after 60 days to ensure that space is available for as many users as possible.

We maintain a local mailing list for WUSTL Galaxy users on the cluster: WUSTL CHPC Galaxy mailing list. Please register for this list to post questions, suggest enhancements, and/or report problems. One of the advantages of a local Galaxy instance is the ability to customize the instance for the local community. Our goal is to customize the WUSTL CHPC Galaxy instance to meet the needs of the WUSTL research community. Please send us feedback through the mailing list so we can implement and support the features you need.
