a Birds-of-a-Feather meeting for the Computational Biology Education (CoBE) Community at ISMB Prague

Hans-Rudolf Hotz
Hi all


Most likely, you are already aware of this......

The "Computational Biology Education (CoBE) Community" - a Community of
Special Interest at the ISMB/ECCB conference - is organizing a
Birds-of-a-Feather meeting:

This is in addition to the workshop
(https://www.iscb.org/cms_addon/conferences/ismbeccb2017/workshops.php#WK01)
they are organizing already



Should GTN be present at this BoF?



Regards, Hans-Rudolf

Hi Hans-Rudolf, all

I wasn't aware of any of this!  Thanks for posting the links.

I think so.  

That BoF is during BOSC, which is unfortunate, and which may mean that no one will actually be able to attend (see https://galaxyproject.org/events/2017-ismb-bosc/ for Galaxy-related content I know about).

Does anyone think they would be able to attend this BoF?

The post says:

Even if you are unable to attend the BoF, we welcome your input.

So I think we should at least do that, even, if we don't have anyone who can make it.

The posts asks for:

please provide 2 to 3 bullet points identifying the educational goals and needs of your community.

Here's a start

Galaxy Training Network
- Goals: Scale bioinformatics and Galaxy training; 
  - make it easy to find trainers, training events, and training materials
  - make it easy to collaboratively create, maintain, and share training materials
- Needs: How to make this happen, when very few of us are full-time trainers

Thoughts?  (And I think that needs statement is weak.)

Thanks,

Dave C

Hi Dave, Hans-Rudolf, all,

I don't know if these are GTN needs or just mine :) but aswell as what Dave put, what about...

For the Galaxy training material that's being developed it would be great to have as many bioinformatics trainers as possible be aware that it exists and also try it out and give feedback on how they find it.

How to best link in with other bioinformatics groups/networks/trainers for awareness of what each other are doing, sharing learnings/resources, collaborating on things of common interest etc. As I think the Galaxy Training Network Github is a great idea, and for trainers like me who also teach other bioinformatics software it could be great if there were also centralized Githubs/communities for collaborative development of high-quality bioinformatics training for R, Python, Command Line, HPC etc (they could maybe even use the same datasets where appropriate).

Cheers,

Maria
