Dear Microbial Research Community,

Galaxy - - is an open-access, web-based platform for data-intensive computational research. It is used in a variety of domains including microbial data analysis: for microbiome samples or bacterial isolates, long reads or short, shotgun or 16S, genomics, transcriptomics, or proteomics. 

microGalaxy, a community of practice focused on microbial data analysis in Galaxy, would like to learn more about use cases where Galaxy was beneficial, and also the barriers that prevent researchers from using Galaxy. The aim is to collectively find solutions to improve user experience and reduce barriers. 

To this end, we launch a short survey to reach out to and learn from the microbial research community:

We encourage anyone to fill out this survey who:

  • has used Galaxy for any kind of microbial focused research (e.g. metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, microbiome, bacterial isolates … ), or

  • conducts microbial research or is planning to do so, but has not yet used Galaxy, or is hindered by certain aspects of Galaxy from using it.

You can find more information about this survey and how we plan to use it on the dedicated post here:

We would be really grateful if you could help us by

  • Filling the survey

  • Sharing this survey with anyone around you, and in your communities!

  • Retweeting or reposting on social media

Thank you for your help supporting better microbial data analysis in Galaxy!
