Description: 
With 50,000 data analysis per month and more than 1,500 citations (google scholar), the phylogenetic analysis pipeline Phylogeny.fr [1] is one of the most visible French IT resources both at the national and international levels. Phylogenetic analysis is performed by chaining (selected) programs together. Today, users’ needs have evolved; they can use Phylogeny.fr for teaching, inducing possibly hundreds of users at the same time, or employ it in batch mode leading to the submission of large amount of requests to the same server. Those practises have led to several engorgements of our servers. In this project, we thus plan to increase the robustness of Phylogeny.fr. The originality of the new version of Phylogeny.fr lies in considering a scientific workflow environment (Galaxy) coupled with a web interface allowing visualization and interaction with phylogenetic objects. More precisely, this project will provide (i) a large set of phylogenetic analysis bricks and for each brick, access to diverse programs, all encapsulated into Galaxy thus making the system able to deal with large groups of users and/or large sets of data, (ii) a set of optimized, robust and expressive workflows extending the basic phylogenetic workflow to various and rich contexts of phylogenetic analyses, (iii) an easy-to-install environment equipped with a new visualization layer, on top of the Galaxy system, and dedicated to phylogenetic analyses.
