Integration IDR-Galaxy (WP1, WP2, WP3)

EuroBioimaging and ELIXIR members met during three days with the European Galaxy team in Freiburg (Germany) to make image data from the Image Data Resource (IDR) accessible through the Galaxy interface.

This integration benefits the life science communities making images easily accessible and reusable to every user. It also tightens the collaboration between EOSC-Life Work Package 1 on FAIR data resources, Work Package 2 on tools collaboratory and Work Package 3 (Demonstrator 6). With this integration, Galaxy users would be able to access the images stored at the IDR and automatically download them to their Galaxy workspace to run an imaging workflow afterwards.
