Galaxy has an always-growing API that allows for external programs to upload and download data, manage histories and datasets, run tools and workflows, and even perform admin tasks. This session will cover a variety of approaches to making use of the API.


  • Basic understanding of Galaxy from a developer point of view.
  • Python programming.
  • A wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser.  Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari will work best.
