Research Data Management at UF: Tools

This is a guide on resources available at the University of Florida and beyond on research data management. It includes information about tools for data management planning, data and file sharing, metadata and data standards, and data storage.

Galaxy at UF

UF researchers have access to an instance of Galaxy at Research Computing - a web-based framework for accessible, reproducible and transparent biological computing. Galaxy has arisen as the most popular framework for providing biological researchers access to the tools they need for the analysis of their data.

Scheduled training sessions on Galaxy are listed here. Please contact Oleksandr Moskalenko or Matt Gitzendanner for further questions on Galaxy.


For individual or group consultation/training on how to prepare your Data Management Plan, please contact your liaison librarian/subject specialist.
