Don't get me wrong, I'm strongly convinced that Galaxy is a powerful tool to manipulate data interactively.
But as a trained bioinformatician who have a deep knowledge of the linux command line, do you consider that it is only a tool for the "biologist/end-user or do you actually use galaxy for your every day data-manipulations (why?).
We're about to install galaxy here, and some colleagues believe that it will be used from 'A' to 'Z' to make our NGS analysis. Why not ? But why should I spend some time in front of my web browser when I can write a shell-script (and save it into git).
OH: Using Galaxy with big data requires local installation, which requires competence, but with such competence you don't need to use Galaxy— Lex Nederbragt (@lexnederbragt) April 26, 2017
