Hello all - I would like to evaluate Galaxy for integration with Ingenuity's NGS analytics platform, and am trying to pull together some macro materials on how Galaxy has been used and adopted by the community at large. Are there any presentations or wiki pages that summarize basic stuff like: # users # of deployments/ instances (public or private) Relative use of CloudMan vs locally deployed Use in any clinical or regulated environments (e.g. CLIA) I've seen the materials at but this looks to be only related to the public instance. Are there any similar materials that summarize across all installations, perhaps based on user surveys or the like? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Ramon, The Galaxy Project does not track local installs directly. We don't even keep track of the number of times it is downloaded. However, you can get an approximate feel for how widely used it is in a couple of other ways: - Galaxy-Dev mailing list traffic and membership. Most messages to this list come from people doing local installs of Galaxy. There are a *lot*of messages. ists - Source code contributions from the community. See - The public Galaxy server list at These are all local installs (and this number may go up again this week). - The isgalaxy tag in Galaxy's CiteUlike group. These papers are about installations of Galaxy. - The uselocal, usepublic, and uselocal tags at CiteULike. We started keeping track of these in March 2013. So this will give you an idea of how many papers since March indicate that the used a Galaxy other than Main. We will be updating most of our statistics at the end of this month. We'll also be back-curating the new citeulike tags back to the beginning of 2013. Hope this helps. Dave C --
