QIIME 2 available on public galaxy server!

I’m excited to share that QIIME 2 is now accessible through the public Galaxy server, https://cancer.usegalaxy.org! Galaxy is a web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and scalable biomedical data analyses. This Galaxy server is generously hosted by and maintained by the Goecks Lab, a cancer data science research laboratory at Oregon Health & Science University. There are currently no restrictions on how the server can be used, but the Goecks Lab may need to limit storage and/or compute resources at some point if demand exceeds what they can offer.

This offering results from a collaboration between the QIIME 2 and Galaxy developers, who are both funded in part by the National Cancer Institute’s Informatics Technology for Cancer Research program. Galaxy is also funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute and the National Science Foundation. QIIME 2 is additionally funded by the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative. We thank our funders for making this possible!

If you’d like to learn more about using QIIME 2 through Galaxy, you can refer to the QIIME 2 Cancer Microbiome Intervention Tutorial, which is available as a JupyterBook and a corresponding YouTube course. You can also find written instructions for running the Moving Pictures tutorial through Galaxy in the Multiple Interface edition of the Moving Pictures tutorial. You can learn more about Galaxy through interactive tutorials available via the Galaxy Training Network and can get help using Galaxy on the Galaxy Help Forum.

Enjoy QIIME 2 and Galaxy!
