The NBIC Galaxy is used for genomics and proteomics data analysis. End users can easily use the web based interface to run sophisticated methods and algorithms without worrying about the local installation, maintenance, or data back-ups. Various NBIC BioAssist teams are also using this service to collaborate and provide integrated data analysis pipelines to end users in the life sciences and other national programmes like the Netherlands Proteomics Centre and Ecogenomics centre.
The NBIC Galaxy on Cloud is suitable to run complicated genomics and proteomics data analysis algorithms and it can deal with large amounts of data like de novo assembly task of middle to large genomes. In addition, the NBIC Galaxy support team and the BRS-team, can help end-users from non-commercial parties to do better science by allowing them to explore and analyse their full datasets on the server in a consistent manner. Furthermore, life scientists can be trained on this server during the Galaxy and Sequencing courses to work with state-of-the-art datasets and tools.
