ballaxy is a Galaxy-based workflow toolkit for structural bioinformatics.

The documentation of ballaxy (including download and installation instructions) can be found in our wiki.

For simple installation of the ballaxy server on a local machine, we provide docker images. These are in the beta stages, but can already be tried out. For instance,

docker run -p 8080:80 anhi/ballaxy

will download and run a ballaxy server that can be found at


Please note that this command creates a transient machine, and all changes (e.g., results of tool runs) will be deleted after the docker image stops. For more information and instructions on how to enable permanent storage please have a look at the repository info on our docker hub entry.

NOTE: the images require docker versions >= 1.0.1
