I am a very new user of Galaxy. I have been trying to develop some tools to be integrated into the Galaxy server with Python 3.5. However, I got to know that the galaxy server itself was written with Python 2.6/2.7.

With that, when your tool is installed, Galaxy will also install the requested Python and will run your tool with that python in PATH. Please see the following tool that depends specifically on Python 2.7:
