I'm a post-doctoral researcher at INRIA (in Grenoble, France). My research is about scientific data management for research on materials (collaborating with researchers from the CEA), and I'm considering leveraging Galaxy to set up an infrastructure (a prototype) to upload images from equipment (such as large microscopes) and to run analysis workflows on them.
I searched a little and found that a group has done something similar, applying Galaxy to NLP (the Lappsgrid). Are you aware of other initiatives to use Galaxy for research on materials?
I'll need to make changes in the source code to adapt it to my context, should I do that in a fork of the github repository, or should I create a new repository?
Once I have a prototype, my research will focus on data movement, in-situ analysis and workflow execution. Are you aware of other people working on those aspects with Galaxy?
Best regards, Francieli
