Galaxy is a public, internet accessible resource. Data transfer and data
storage are not encrypted. If there are restrictions on the way your research
data can be stored and used, please consult your local institutional review
board (IRB) or the project PI before uploading it to any public site, including
this Galaxy server.
Please, note that we understand that in many cases when clinical data is
analyzed it is not advisable to transmit such data over internet at all. In
these situations we advise users to deploy local galaxy installations
(http://getgalaxy.org) or cloud instances (http://usegalaxy.org/cloud; although
cloud does not solve the transmission issue).
We anticipate having a Galaxy workshop in the greater LA area in the coming
months and will be glad to discuss these issues.
Thanks for using Galaxy.
