Dear GOBLET members,
GOBLET and Elixir are planning a joint hackathon for metagenomic
training material re-use, to take place in Copenhagen in April 2016.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together trainers and
researchers working in the field of metagenomics from within Europe
and beyond, to enhance the training network within this field.
The workshop will focus on the curation of training materials in the
area of metagenomics, encompassing appropriate high-throughput
sequencing workflows (genome assembly, annotation and analysis) and
related subjects, such as phylogenetics and comparative genomics.
During the workshop we aim:
to develop a collection of metagenomics training materials
that are consistently described, to enable sharing and re-use of
these materials across the training community;
to define an approach for the curation of training materials
for re-use through training portals and repositories such as
TeSS and GOBLET; and
to link training materials to tools in the "ELIXIR Tools &
Data Services Registry".
In order to achieve this, we would like to invite metagenomics
trainers from GOBLET to participate to this workshop, bring their
own training materials and work collaboratively to annotate them in
a consistent manner.
We expect around 30 participants, representing both Elixir and
GOBLET, to attend this event.
If you have developed training materials in the analysis of
metagenomics data and are interested in attending such workshop,
please email Gabriella Rustici ([hidden email])
or Sarah Morgan ([hidden email])
by Friday 25th September to state your interest. We would
be grateful if you could also send us a brief description of your
training involvement so far.
