The Galaxy Project API provides programmatic access to collaborative scientific data. The API enables exploratory analysis, visualization, construction of workflows, and rerunning workflows on new datasets. The project invites the scientific community to collaborate and share genomics, metagenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, drug discovery outside biology findings. The Galaxy Project is supported in part by NSF, NHGRI, The Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences, The Institute for CyberScience at Penn State, and Johns Hopkins University.
Fifteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in the Science, Cryptocurrency, and Financial categories, among others. Highlights include the Chooch object and facial recognition API and the Dataverse API for research data access. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
