Usegalaxy.be is a public Galaxy instance enabling reproducible data analysis through workflows. Next to providing support for reproducible science, the platform facilitates sharing of data and results, and removes the need for users to install tools.
UseGalaxy.be was developed by ELIXIR Belgium and has been released for public use in 2019. The platform is hosted on the Flemish Supercomputer Centre.
Globally, Galaxy is broadly used in life sciences and beyond. Publications referring to Galaxy can be found here. In March 2020, the Belgian Galaxy instance was used to re-analyse available COVID-19 data and assess the reproducibility of initial papers on the COVID-19 genome. The joint paper by Galaxy teams from the United States, Australia and ELIXIR, indicated the importance of open access data and open reproducible analytics for fast and efficient response to global health crises as the COVID-19 pandemic.
