Explain functionality[edit]

This page doesn't really explain what Galaxy does or can do. The section "Functionality" should explain that and ideally provide a list of examples. For example, the page says that Galaxy is "a data integration platform for biological data". What kind of data? What kind of integration? An example of its functionality is "Assembly of NGS sequence data" but that's not even mentioned. Thanks! Peteruetz (talk) 15:42, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Take a look at the functionality section now. Slightly more specific, and adds that Galaxy is used in lots of other domains too. Tnabtaf (talk) 11:34, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
