Overview

Galaxy is an easy-to-use, open-source, scalable framework for tool and data integration. Galaxy provides access to tools (mainly comparative genomics) through an interface (e.g., a web-based interface). The Galaxy framework is implemented in the Python programming language.

End Users

A public instance of Galaxy maintained by Penn State University is at http://usegalaxy.org/

Developers

To get started with installing your own Galaxy instance, the only required component is Python (2.4,2.5, and 2.6). Four simple steps will get you started with your own Galaxy instance

  1. clone the mercurial galaxy distribution
    hg clone http://www.bx.psu.edu/hg/galaxy galaxy_dist
    or get a source tarball
  2. execute setup.sh
  3. execute run.sh
  4. go to http://localhost:8080
  • Galaxy runs on a local webserver, PasteScript written in Python. PasteScript is based on Python's library module simplehttpserverand implemented with the help of python package, WSGIUtils
<Proxy http://localhost:8080>
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all
</Proxy>

  • http://localhost/galaxy should bring up Galaxy on port 80 now

Apache and Postgres Setup

In production mode it is reccomended that something other than SQLlite and the python web server be used, preferably postgres and apache. When setting up apache to proxy requests to the python web server on CentOS it is critical that the default CentOS security policy be overridden to allow proxying as shown below.

setsebool -P httpd_can_network_relay=1

Additionally, postgres ident privileges should be changed. One workaround is to set postgres to trust all local users as shown below in /var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf

local   all         all                               trust
