The Galaxy Project

Cancer Computer provides a public Galaxy server, part of The Galaxy Project, free for scientists doing cancer or related research (registration required).  We also offer private Galaxy instances ranging from 8-1024 cores, and up to 100TB at substantially discounted rates, to researchers requiring more computational power and storage space.

Galaxy makes analysis tools, genomic data, tutorial demonstrations, persistent workspaces, visualizations, and publication services available, in a powerful and user friendly interface.

Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research. Cancer Computer is grateful to be part of this amazing community of researchers and developers.

Galaxy is a genomics research platform. Genomics is a genetics discipline that applies DNA sequencing methods, and bioinformatics to sequence, assemble, and analyze the function and structure of genomes (the complete set of DNA within a single cell of an organism). Advances in genomics have been critical in the fight against cancer. The National Cancer Institute outlines how important genomics is in battling the cancer scourge.

Making Galaxy available to researchers for free, or substantially discounted, accelerates advances in treatments against the many types of cancers. As researchers use Cancer Computer’s Galaxy instances, and publish, we will post here updating current research projects we’re helping to realize.
